First, it is 0.72, not 0.78. Second, I have a difficult time understanding why
you would want to do without the finder. I realize it is a bit of a drag to have
to put it on, but presumably you are interested in the entire frame when using a
24mm lens. In which case you need the finder unless you have some truly
exceptional eye muscles. If you do not care too much about what is in the edges
of your photo, then you might as well buy the 28mm instead.
