GM1 + 1.7/20 + OVF

Like many others I am missing a hot shoe on my GM1. Not for flash but for an optical viewfinder...

For my 1.7/20 I had put a olympus VF-1 on my old GF-1, the angle of the viewfinder is originally for 17mm - but it is seems to be barely wider than the angle of the 20mm (for a 17mm it must be very shallow) and therefore it is very useful to me.

Here is my solution for the GM1: fixed with a sort of high-tech velcro called "3M Dual Lock":

Not as stable or precise as a hotshoe - but more stable than I will definitely not fall off...actually I can grab the camera by the VF.
