I am just being nitpicky, but i would venture to guess that the answer to #1 today is no longer the viewfinder and had changed to the lcd screen.

Actually they all still come with viewfinders, don't they. I still use mine even though it has a 2.5" LCD screen.

Nope, most do not have viewfinders at all anymore, at least the point and shoot variety. The dSLR's all have viewfinders though, but point and shoot are vastly more popular than dSLR's.

Oh LT, I need to go back to school. I did abysmally today. Only got 1, 3 and 4 and gave myself a forehead slap for the last two!

Got two Nikons, a dSLR and a point and shoot. Both have viewfinders.

That is why I said most, not all. All dSLR's have a view finder. Most point and shoots do not.
