28mm Viewfinder Options
Mar 17, 2013

Unfortunately I recently sold my Voigtlander 28/35 viewfinder because I wasn't using it. Big mistake. I just preordered the Nikon CoolPix A and now am looking for a possibly used but new if it's affordable 28mm viewfinder just to use if the camera position has sunlight hitting the LCD.
Which would be the best balance between size and price. The Sigma VF-11, Ricoh GV-2, Voigtlander 28mm new from B&H for $209. I've even read that it's possible to use the Olympus VF1 17mm viewfinder (34mm) that outside the 17mm markings it's about 28mm. That sells for $89.
Also I'll probably be selling a few of my compact cameras to pay for the CoolPix A. Like the original Ricoh GR Digital in mint condition with only about 2800 exposures. The last file reads R0012798.JPG as the file name.
