I got the Olympus Pen E-PM1 with standard 2 kit lenes now i would like to buy either a viewfinder VF-2/3 or a nice small lens like Panasonic H-H014E Lumix G Pancake Lens (i was told that fitted). now when i have used the camera having no viewfinder is a problem in the sun but i don't think it would be a problem too much just yet so i was thinking of getting either that pana or something else, what would you guys recommend? if you was in my position what would you buy first?

The usability of the E-PM1 will be greatly enhanced by adding an external viewfinder. You're covered on the lens front for now, and I cannot image you find it easy hand holding a telephoto lens at arms length.
