I own an Alpha 65, and my daughter has my old 550 (and son my then her 350).

When I pick up her 550 to take some pictures from time to time, I find it almost immediately distasteful and want to put it down. Part of it is the dim and small image, but part of it is the fact that I feel like I am looking through a telescope instead of composing an image.

I just can't imagine ever buying another OVF camera again.

I almost feel the same when I pick up my Maxxum 7 film camera, except I wonder why I can't find a camera that gives me the excellent, large, bright VF image I had with that old 20th century camera.  (And I have tried the A77 and still find its VF image very harsh and unpleasant to use.)
