    Hi everybody.
    I am looking for a viewfinder for my e-p3 but definitely dont like the vf-2 or 3. They are bulky, ruin my camera stilish look, and make it no more pocketable (I use it with pana 20mm)...

    Any ideas? Other solutions?
    Have you tried the optical Helios multifinder?

    I will occasionally use the Olympus VF-1 optical viewfinder with the Panasonic 20mm; works well enough for what it is.

    That's the same FOV?

    It's close enough. :) The VF-1 was made for the m.Zuiko 17mm/2.8.

    The VF-2 and VF-3 shouldn't ruin your pocketability though. Just take them off when you put the camera in your pocket. I keep mine in an attached pouch so it stays with the camera without being in the way. The style thing is personal taste though.

    Just ordered the Helios Multifinder.
    Will let you know how it works.
