Re: Those pricey viewfinders?

The VF2 and VF3 fit most of the Olympus PEN cameras, as well as the OMD EM5 and the compact XZ1 and XZ2. The only exception is the first PEN, the EP1, which does not have the electronic interface. The EPL1 needs the latest firmware to use the VF3, but the VF2 runs on everything else.

The difference between the two is that the VF2 has a wider screen, maybe 10%, while the VF3 has a lock. Many users pooh pooh the lock, but if you ever had a $200 viewfinder turn up missing as I have, then you become a believer. I replaced my lost VF2, and later picked up the VF3 for $99.
