The CPA is an amazing camera, still! A viewfinder would have been nice, but ok.

The single thing that makes it stand out to me is its lens. That lens is superp even wide open. Crystal sharp and with contrast and color I have never seen in any of the other lenses, I have come across in my amateur photographic life.

Did you know it came with an optional OVF? It was called the DF-CP1.

Your decked-out CPA looks like a street photographer's dream! I always would have liked one of those viewfinders, but for me they were priced way too high - and are actually still higher than the current value of any of my cameras.

Street photography is what I use my CPA for. You're right though: the prices for these accessories were definitely too high. I found the viewfinder and hood on sale at The Camera Store a few years ago. I had a friend buy it and bring it back to me in Australia. It was an indulgence but this camera does make me happy every time I use it.
