Re: external viewfinder RICOH GRIII GRIIIx

I mean, the Ricoh GV-3 is actually a better price than other 40mm viewfinders you're likely to find anywhere, for what are actually very good optics in such a small package. And no, an add-on EVF isn't possible unless the hot shoe were majorly redesigned, or an additional port were integrated somewhere below it.

If you feel bad paying for one accessory finder, try shooting with a rangefinder like my Voigtlander Bessa T that doesn't have a built in viewfinder. Every different focal length lens needs its own finder. It's heartbreaking looking at how expensive they are. One of the Chinese optics companies needs to start manufacturing all sorts of brightline finders, it would be a niche market but a good one.
