I was wondering witch advance has a Camera dot sight like Olympus EE-1 vs a generic one

I saw this review on youtube and seems to work ok

Does alignment remain while moving zoom or adding / removing teleconverter?

The problem with all of these is that attachment on hot shoe is imprecise and not sufficiently rigid. With some care in alignment they can be terrific.

I happen to have that sight, and it's OK.  The only problem with my sight is that the dot position shifts a little if you move your eye from side to side or top to bottom.  Good enough for birds and whales, but probably not good enough for a gun sight.  It's a bargain.  If you can figure a way to mount it, buy it.
