Some very ingenious people in China have come up with an external viewfinder for the DP cameras. It should work for both the old DPs and the Merrills. The resolution is low, 320x240, which is the same as the display on the old DP series, but for use in bright light conditions it should be acceptable. They say they can make a higher resolution EVF if the demand is there. A bunch of information and pictures here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3679661#forum-post-53792768 I'm definetely tempted to pick one up if the price isn't too high.
