The Nikon 7100 has a zoom optical viewfinder, I suspect it's very similar to the OVF in the G12.

You are correct.  It's not the greatest viewfinder in the world, but it always gives me a clear view, something even EVF's occasionally fail to deliver.  Due to its 82% or so coverage, cropping later is needed if you want to get the image you framed; however, I like it so much better than the LCD that I now take all my P7100 pictures using the optical viewfinder.
