Re: adding VF worth on E-PL2 or any Micro FourThird?

The VF is definitely worth it.  I too bought an E-PL2 on sale to go with my E-510, E-1 and E-30.

After I got it I used it more than my SLRs but only with the VF.

I found it great for using in manual focus mode.  With FT lenses it automatically switches to magnified view when you hit the focus ring.  I also used it extensively with my legacy OM glass - here you hit a button to go into magnify mode for MF.

Without the VF still a great camera but the screen makes it not so pleasant to use - particularly suffers in bright light as the screen is washed out.  With the VF it will suffer in low light due to noise.

Get it, get the VF and the appropriate adapter for your legacy lenses - have fun!
