of my questions now (just time to say blessings, blessings on the digital
mavens of this list, because I would be in the depths of despond without

We may be talking about two different things... I THOUGHT Tom mentioned
"EV," and my manual definitely lists an "EV rating," also in one of her
posts, Chris said she kept her camera set at .7 EV. This seems different
from "EVF" and not to relate to "Electronic View Finder."

My G5 does have a teeny tiny optical view finder, which is, as Etienne

though blurry is because i'm looking through the TOPS of my bifocals
(which worked with Nikon SLR -- so that's ANOTHER difference between
digital & analog, at least in these 2 makes). When other stuff is under
control, I'll try adjusting the diopter button to make view finder work
better -- but I'd REALLY like to make the LCD monitor work -- that's what
I bought the G5 for !
