The 300D is similar, but with small squares forming a cross. I don't find it easy to use as a level reference at all. I like the solution my old Nikkormat FTN has - two small bars either side of the viewfinder; it's not intrusive and it works perfectly.
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

To be honest that is the last thing on my mind when shooting, ok not quite, but I would be more concerned about my exposure, motive and recreating that shot that I have in my mind just when your eye catches that moment, you know you've just spotted that shot. Like this one the other day at Weston. I was driving off when my eye caught the Spitfire in the hanger and I knew I had what I wnated. Took a few photos but wasn't quite getting what I really wanted till I stuck on my 300 LIS with the 1.4 TC and then looking though my view finder I had it. Not sure if it's a.net worthy, it's in the queue anyway, but I love it. To me levelling and can come later in PS. The wonders of digital!
