Hi Dick,

Yes, I have no difficulty seeing the aperture and shutter info in the 
viewfinder, regardless of the weather--at least I did not when I was in 
Alicante, and there was certainly bright sunlight there.
The absence of an LCD panel is not as big a bother as I thought it would 
be, since I can just push the INFO button to see everything, and access 
any of the settings if needed. For me this matters little because I tend 
to not fiddle a lot with settings--I pick an aperture, set the camera on 
Aperture Priority, set the appropriate ISO for the light conditions, and 
that's it. I never change white balance, shooting mode (always RAW for 
me), focusing or lightmetering modes.
