Excellent idea, it would be great to have that on the gx100 (as well as on other cameras). Liked the sony R1 for that reason.

it seems so for Ricoh, but let's talk honestly, will an intermal VF be as good as what we have for the GXR?

Wayyyy back at the time of the GX100 I suggested a half-sized lcd that plugged into the hotshoe and electronic connector to give a waist level finder.

This has changed in my imagination into a right angle lcd on a stalk to clear the pop up flach and having an old-fashioned set of pop-up light shields on three sides to beat screen white out from glare.

Obviously much of the way there already - both hot shoe and connector exist. The side folding lcd on the NEX is only really a version of the same thing wthout the light excluding sides.

Just proposing an accessory to obviate the necessity of a whole new GXR back that may not suit everyone.
