LX3 External Optical Viewfinder
Nov 8, 2009

Finally, after about a year of waiting I finally got an external optical viewfinder for my LX3! The view through it is a bit brighter than I expected (no complaints anout that), but I did notice something interesting. When I point the viewfinder toward a small, intense light source (such as street light) I can see several round rings of light through the viewfinder. Is this normal? I suspect that the attention to coating is probably not as elaborate in the viewfinder as it is with the lenses.

Here are some images of my LX3 with the new viewfinder. (images shot with my FZ-50)
