but....why must you hold your 60d in front of you?? There is a nice optical viewfinder right there waiting to be used. Are you primarily about video or something?? I wouldn't trade an optical viewfinder for an evf personally, but to each their own.

Hey Keith,

My post was written when I was WORN OUT and I may not have expressed my thoughts clearly enough. I meant that I have to hold the M out in front of me.

  • IS! I'll likely have this on my 60D quite often but for those occasions where it's on the M, the IS will REALLY come in handy since the camera lacks an EVF and therefore must be held out in front of my body which makes handholding less reliable
