    want to replace an Olympus FE-210.

    The viewing screen doesn't work for me, I want something with an
    optical viewfinder. Ability to close focus would be good, say to fill
    the screen with something about two inches across.

    I have a good camera for special stuff, I am looking for something to
    leave in the car, to take visual notes, to grab a shot when I didn't
    plan to do photography.

    Something about the same size would be desirable, 3.5 X 2.5 X 1.5

    Brand is not important to me.

    Wanting an optical VF limits your choice with compact cameras.

    I would start with a Canon G12, or G11 if you can find one. Then the
    Nikon P7000. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-L5 does not come with an optical
    VF, but there are two optional add-on's, an optical VF, or an
    electronic VF.
    A used FujiFilm E-900 would also fit your needs.
    On the lesser side there are the Canons SD1200, SD780, & A1100 if you
    can find them. Amazon might be your best bet for any of those, and
    perhaps the E-900.
    There are a few other options where an optional VF might be available,
    such as the Ricoh GR DIII.
