In theory, I like an EVF. I even bought the external one (VF-2) for my XZ-1.

But in everything, there are tradeoffs. With the Stylus 1 these tradeoffs include the effective size of the camera being significantly larger along both its height and depth, by a degree which in my case likely makes the difference between a camera I can take with me everywhere, and one which I probably wouldn't.

Chopping off the EVF should also take a big chunk out of the price and weight, which I wouldn't mind either.

Basically a Stylus 1-without-EVF, being not much bigger than an XZ-1 but with much greater range, would be close to my ideal take-everywhere camera, but with the EVF, it's too big. So I'm sad.

I haven't noticed anyone else expressing this desire. Am I the only one?

(Edit: All of this still holds even if it also involves losing the flash.)

There are enough EVF-less cameras out there in the market.  Go take a look.
