Is anyone besides myself unhappy enough about the lack of an OVF on the P7700 to seriously consider the Canon G15 as an alternative?

Or am I unusual in using an OVF on a compact? (I use the one on my P7000 all the time I'm outside in sunlight - I simply can't see the LCD well enough under those conditions for it to be useful.)

The G15 also does RAW (but of course they can't be processed in CNX2. ) And the max F/2.8 is attractive, since the P7700 only gives me one extra stop over my P7000.

I don't mean this as an invitation to debate whether one needs an OVF - you either think you do or you don't, and it's unlikely that anything anyone says here will change your mind - but rather as an informal poll as to whether you'd consider the G15 over the P7700, particularly because the G15 has an OVF- although other reasons are fair game too.
