DL 4 Brilliant VF was NOT quite brilliant

on my new DL5.

I didn't like the idea of spending more than 250 USD on a VF especially an EVF on my DL5, so I ordered DL 4 Brilliant OVF and tested out yesterday.

It was plain terrible.

First of all, it fits very well. And you can set the camera to turn the LCD off while using the VF, however, composition does NOT match between camera and the VF.

I looked into the VF where 24mm mark was, but in the camera, it was more like 36mm.

I am returning the product.

I do recommend the X1 wrist strap on DL5 though.
It works very well; all black and leathery.
Also it comes with the wrist adjuster like a wii remote.
