That's the setup I'm using on the G1, which mounts on its hotshoe. The RDS works very well because one can simply place the projected dot image (projected to the front lens of the sightj) on the flying bird without having to align the optical system with the eye. So it's VERY quick to acquire focus lock on the incoming bird. Ducks, for example, move quite fast as they're flying, don't offer much opportunity for good poses. That's why I was gratified to be able to capture these. Thanks for your comments.
