Re: Not A Fan of Viewfinders. Am I crazy?

I started with a Perfex rangefinder in 1947 with a viewfinder. Today part of the time I like to use my Panasonic mirrorless with a number of Canon FD lenses with an adapter. This necessitates "manual focus" and unless you are Arnold I defy you to hold the camera with a 75-300 FD lens attached at arms length and see anything. I'm not small at 6'2" and 218 but I can't do it. If I hold the combo up to my face (EVF) with elbows locked into my sides generally I can get a sharp focused shot. If you can hold this combo at arms length and get a sharp shot or even a framing shot then you're a "Much better man than me Gunga Din".
