Yep you were right, just had a quick shot of it on my EP2 having just taken the EVF out the packet at work and it looks amazing!

Re: Olympus VF3 available

Now I have the XZ-1 and E-PL1 I'm more interested in a VF-2 or 3.

The 3 appeals due to the lock.

Can someone who has both post a review/comparison please?

(may be a long wait!).
