VF-2 arrived for XZ-1 & E-PL1



2nd hand, boxed with pouch and mint condition.

I've tried it briefly tonight on both cameras and it seems a good tight fit. In the few minutes I played with it I liked what I saw.

Went for this over the VF-3 as it can be fitted with a bigger eyecup (EP-9).

Actually I dug out an old OM fit pear shaped eyecup and I think it will fit with a little trimming and three notches cut to keep it in place - keep you posted on that, although I don't know what make it is!

Still debating which is 'better' all round between the two cameras. May have to keep them both a good while longer to decide.

Re: VF-2 arrived for XZ-1 & E-PL1

Mine is a better fit since I put insulating tape up each side of the guide rails!

Can't ever say I've felt like I needed an eyecup on it, even in very bright light.... I think the VF-2 is fab, so can't wait to have a little look through one of the new Sony A65/A77 EVF's. OLED and twice the resolution of the VF-2!

I still find it difficult to associate Sony with cameras, but you've got to give them brownie points for innovation and effort....
