Re: Will VF2 Work On E-PL1?

I seem to remember reading that the newer and very much improved VF2 viewfinder doesn't work on the "1" series cameras, is that correct?

The VF-2 works fine on my E-PL1, the later and not quite so good VF-3 needs to have the latest firmware update to function.

The very first Pen, the E-P1 does not have the necessary comms port under the hot-shoe so no chance of working.

Anyway, here's the viewfinder compatibility chart for reassurance.... http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/compati/pen_optical.cfm

The whole set of compatibility charts starts from here... http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/compati/

That and other links that may be of interest on my page at http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~parsog/olyepl1/03-epl1-links.html
