    Hi, I'm new here and this maybe an old question. I own a Pen E-PL1 but Olympus EVF-2 is quite expensive, at 1/2 of its price, would Panasonic EVF work on E-PL1?

    Even the distant from hotshoe to interface is different. I wonder why the 2 partners did not standardize this accessory. So those who want higher resolution buys the Oly and those who don't buy the Panny.:redface:
