Is Olympus' EV-2 Viewfinder the Missing Link?

When the Olympus EV-2 electronic viewfinder was first announced (along with the Olympus E-P2 Pen Digital camera) I had a feeling they were onto something. After finally getting one to play with I know they’re onto something, and it’s something that I hope other manufacturers start picking up on. With the exception of DSLRs and bridge-style cameras, viewfinders are quickly vanishing as cameras become tinier as LCDs grow conversely larger. And with dot-counts passing the 1-million mark, the resolving power of LCDs is finally making LCD viewing viable and trustworthy for the most discriminating needs, i.e., you can actually focus a lens manually based on the image on the screen and get sharp pictures.
