My thoughts on NX-EVF10 external EVF for NX100

I finally got in hands the external EVF for nx100.

I started using it with all my lenses, and despite its very low resolution (I can easily see the pixels) it's a nice addition for the price I paid it (few less than 50 euro shipped).

I'm very sensitive to rainbow effect and I see it in this EVF as well, but less than in Sony alpha 55, whose EVF, even if better technically, caused me headache.

I tried it also with legacy lenses (notably with Konica hexanon 57mm f1.4 and yashica 50mm f2.0). Manual focusing is possible with 2x enlargement and possibly better, for me, than the rear screen.

Overall I'd advise getting it for framing purposes only and for increased stability when shooting under low shutter speeds. I use glasses and I'd need an eyecup; anyway I can use it also w/o glasses, by changing the diopters on the EVF.

My vote is 7 out of 10, which keeps into account the low price. If I had to pay its original price, then the vote would have been way lower.
