    Before I plonk that amount of money down on the LVF2 for my GX1, anyone here using it now? It seems like it's not easy to get, I can't find it on eBay, and the only place I know carrying it is this one store on Amazon's website. Anyone using it right now? Or know of any other places carrying it?

    Isn't it basically identical to the built-ins (G1, G2, G3, GH1, GH2)?

    If so, it's pretty nice, and probably worth the effort if you have a GX1

    Haven't tried any of those, this is my first m4/3 camera. :redface: I just want to know if there any issues that haven't been mentioned, like how lose it is, etc. I hope to see no complaints other than the availability. :eek:

    I bought my LVF2 with my GX1 at a local brick and mortar camera shop here in Calgary. Yes, it's a heap of money for a viewfinder but I'm very happy with it.

    It has much better resolution than the LVF1 I use with my GF1 which makes manual focusing using the EVF possible. My copy is also a nice snug fit in the hotshoe of my GX1 .. not much chance of it going missing.

    Finding one for sale online is indeed a challenge right now.

    Nice. :biggrin: Time to harass the local agent to get their act together and get me one. :mad: Do you see yourself taking it out other than the times you need to stick a flash on?
