I am literally in the middle of a 2 day family shoot - grandma is 90 and we 
are out for her to try on clothes as I type this - and while I'm using the 
E1, the E330 is getting most of the work. Live view on an interchangeable 
lens camera is a whole new experience. I have not yet in this shoot even 
though of using the regular viewfinder. There is no going back!
