I cannot take photos using the LCD. It just doesn't work for me. Putting my eye to the VF is like shutting the world out, and I can concentrate better on the photo. Not to mention that I can hardly see the LCD in daylight + I'm farsighted. I just feel if my eye is not on the VF, I'm doing it wrong. Don't know if that makes sense.

That's OK. I wear varifocal glasses so farsighted isn't an issue with the back panel or any of the controls. I do take them off for using a viewfinder. The point is we all have our workarounds.

As for daylight some back panels are pretty bad in bright daylight. I've been tempted to try some one the stick-on pop-up hoods.

I'm used to all sorts of "viewfinders", from view cameras to rangefinders. One trick is to learn to point the camera in reasonably accurately before you fine-tune it with your eye.
