Wow! Such a response! Thanks to everybody who commented
Sounds like I might be frustrated on occasion by bright sunlight; however, given my tendencies toward wide angles and deep depths of field, I don’t think that will be so large a problem as to steer me away from this camera.
I do shoot sometimes with a P&S. It’s my girlfriend’s. Because of my long arms, I end up being the one holding it out to look back at us… bright sunlight hasn’t been a problem with *that* LCD yet!
Will also be keeping my good old *istDL as a backup body. If I find myself wanting to spend a sunny afternoon shooting and find I can’t see the screen, I won’t be totally SOL.
I like the idea of being able to bring the camera into places where ‘pro’ cameras are not allowed & being less obtrusive for street photography.
I also just found a gift certificate in my drawer for 100 bucks for my local photo store. Between that and the posts in this thread, I am convinced! Now it is just down to colour
