Here's one, and here's another, both cameras configured with optical viewfinders. Since you can see outside of the capture area, which helps with booms etc., and you have a superb image to work from, it is a good thing. I think this trend will continue until display technology improves to where a fully daylight-viewable HD monitor with extended underscan is able to equal the clarity of an optical viewfinder.

To the people who are having problems using a B&W view finder are you closing one eye?

Try leaving both eyes open. This is much easier and you can see what you are shooting eg. following the woman in the garden pointing out different flowers etc.
