    I bought a refurbished Olympus EP3 today. I bought it along with the olympus 17 f2.8 and the VF1 viewfinder.

    Is there a way to switch off the LCD while using the Optical viewfinder VF1 ?. Would be nice to safe battery.

    Nope, there isn't. The VF-1 is only a framing tool (and I don't mean for building houses, lol).

    Thanks for a quick answer but

    I should have used the search function bf posting this question.

    This is what I found as a answer to the same question mine.

    *****************************

    "Actually, you can turn off the LCD screen : section B of the menu, you can attribute the "Backlit off" function to the Fn button."

    *****************************

    I did this and it works .

    Go to Custom menu "Button Dial"
    then "Button Function"
    then assign " Backlid LCD " to one of the two FN buttons.

    Works :)
