    Yeah, you read correctly. Olympus optical viewfinder, not the old electronic from Panasonic.

    I'm going to buy a gx1 In a couple of days so...
    I wanted to ask if someone uses this combo, if he's happy about it and if he can post an image of how the combo looks.

    I was thinking of using this with the 20mm from panny.

    It seems Olympus made the base a little too fat to fit into the hotshoe of a GF1. Slides just fine into an E-P2 hotshoe, but no-go on the GF1 for some reason. I would have thought the dimensions of the hotshoe were standard. Go figure.

    This may not be an issue with the GX1, and if it is, a little filing of the plastic with an emory board or something might do the trick. I haven't tried that yet.
