That’s one of main the reason I stuck with the Canon G series is the optical viewfinder and the main reason I always favored Leica rangefinders over SLR’s for street shooting. Short of a hood, I find it almost impossible to compose a shot under bright daylight with a LCD. I’ve been waiting for years for Epson to straighten out their issues with their RD1 series. It doesn’t seem that anyone besides them or Leica has any interest in a parallax compensated viewfinder. Moving to a DSLR defeats the entire purpose.
