New XZ1 (and VF3)
Thanks for your comment. I also printed out the manual but I've only got an A4 printer and I can't exactly see myself pulling my copy out of my bag whenever I want to check something - as you say, it's not a user-friendly experience. I'll post some more after I've been out with my camera tomorrow/Friday.
I am really pleasantly surprised by the VF-3 - I was very unsure whether it would be worth it but I'm so glad I did get it. The colours are certainly "washed out" compared to the final image but I really like composing shots with it, and I can use it with my glasses on with no problem at all.
