So, I like what I have seen so far with the GR II. Not strong in JPG over ISO 1600. I still need to play with the RAW files and see what I can do. One thing that I'm not sure that I can get over is not having a viewfinder. Looking to solicit your opinions for those that like/require viewfinders. What I've found so far is 2 things. 1) There are a few places I've found that make some inexpensive optical viewfinders that sit on the hotshoe. I'd leave the AF point in the middle and just trust that the GR would grab focus most of the time and get the shot. No EVF lag, just good old frame lines that may or may not be 100% accurate...but it is what it is. 2) For about the same price or less than a hotshoe OVF, I could get an LCD loupe. You get to see what is on the LCD, so kind of like a "cheater" EVF. I don't have to worry about the screen getting washed out in bright sun. A few have attachment points to the tripod socket. The issue I see is that this makes the pocketability of the camera moot. In my head, I like having the information from the LCD and am leaning that way(LCD loupe). I would however, love to hear if others may have gone this route, the other or if I should just stop pondering the viewfinder thing all together and just embrace holding the camera out in front of me and looking at the big, beautiful 3" LCD. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and participation.
