Re: a series of very doubtful assertions

Lack of good optical or at least good electronic viewfinder, especially one with diopter correction and focus peaking could be a huge disadvantage for many users.

Personally, I would greatly appreciate additional stabilization by pressing the camera to my face, especially in case of DP cameras which are predominantly low ISO cams with complete lack of built in image stabilization of any kind. This is even more true when focal length increases like in case of DP3M.

For people with less than perfect eyesight, composing and shooting at arm length is sometimes frustrating if not next to impossible. No matter how good and bright the LCD screen is, except for using camera on tripod in Live View mode and image review, there is no advantage of LCD screen over good viewfinder. No amount of adapting on user part will change that IMHO.

You really have to love the camera and the results it produces to put up with limitations such as lack of viewfinder among other things.
