I don't think the position of the finder is ergonomically superior. In fact, I think that the positioning of the finder on the left side is actually superior to having it in the center. To my eye what makes the XT superior ergonomically is the placement of the buttons and dials. Looking at the images it appears to me that most things covered by the Q menu on existing X series bodies are covered by physical controls on the XT and that pleases me. The position of the finder in the middle of the body seems LESS ergonomic to me.

The VF is in the center on a SLR because it has to be, not because it's better. And who wants nose prints on their LCD screen anyway...

An EVF can be anywhere. Someday it will be attached to (or projected onto) your eyeglasses, wireless. Optionally, of course.
