Interesting is it not....?

First bring out a camera with no viewfinder, Then bring out a viewfinder to go with it.....Grin

Its a bit like buying your camera in " Kit " form, Only you buy it in seperate pieces.....Smile

Reminds me of the old " Johnny Cash " his song about a car worker, Who built " One Piece At A Time "

The guy was a one of.....Wink

I have the Panasonic version for my GF2 and it is pretty rudimentary. This looks much better.

Hehe Smile

Its all about choice, if you want an inbody viewfinder get a Pany, if you want in body IS get a Pen.

The price has dropped a little compared to the VF2 and this is not only a viewfinder, just like the VF2 its also a waist level finder.

And if its anything like the VF2 you can use it other camera`s as they become available like the
XZ-1

I wonder if this would fit a Panasonic GF2? The lenses for both have a common fitting but I guess it's unlikely.

I have no idea but I do believe that some of the features found on Olympus flash units will not all work when connected to Pany`s.
