VF3 is the budget viewfinder, VF1/2 and G3 EVF are much better

Got a VF3 for Xmas. After playing with it, I'm very underwhelmed by it.

Unfortunately the VF3 (and the GF1/2) EVF are budget viewfinders, so they aren't the best EVFs you can get.

The previous (and much more expensive) Olympus viewfinder (VF2), the Panasonic G / GH built-in viewfinder and the GX1's external viewfinder are much better. If you get a chance go to a camera shop and check the G3's EVF, it's excellent.

While I think it's good that Olympus offer the choice of 2 different viewfinders (larger more expensive premium viewfinder and a smaller cheaper budget viewfinder), it does mean anyone who isn't aware of this distinction may be disappointed by the VF3's performance
