I used to be dead set against it. Old habits die hard. But my experience with the P7000 indicates that the optical VF has inadequate coverage anyway, so you cannot accurately compose with it. Where it does help is in situations where the light makes the monitor hard to see. That alone, might make it hard to accept a camera without one.
