Re: Just personal preference - but you are mad ;)

^that is interesting about the 'feeling of disconnect'

I started with old SLRs in the 80's. Went to P&S in the digital age.

Have gone back to viewfinder shooting for sports now with a DSLR but going back to VF is where I feel a disconnect with the subject.

You can get very natural shots of a subject with P&S camera held out of the way allowing you to interact with them normally while snapping away silently. The viewfinder approach makes the subject much more aware of the camera and gets in between you and your subject so I feel it is easier to get those natural human subject shots with a P&S.
