rubber eye guard/proximity sensor

How bad are the eyecups on recent Panasonic cameras? I've preordered the FZ200 and plan to use the viewfinder a lot (I wear glasses).

Also, does anyone know if the camera has a proximity sensor so the LCD automatically goes off when you hold the camera to the eye. Or must you manually turn it on and off?

As mentioned in another thread, the last Pany superzoom I owned was the FZ18, so I've a lot of catching up to do regarding the newer models.

The FZ200 will replace my DSLR, which has become quite a burden to carry due to an injury I had more than two years ago. I usually don't carry any extra lenses because of this and too often I wish I had a different lens that was sitting back home.

Thank you.
