    From their own description this add- on covers and magnifies the camera's LCD. It isn't an evf as we know them at all. What a stupid idea.
    Does Photokina have a wooden spoon award for worst product at the show?

    for some people having absolute control over what will happen before they press the shutter is paramount

    hurrah to sigma for addressing that need

    I think it kind of defeats any portability aspects of the camera, if it had any in the first place.

    I thought the portability was destroyed by the lens, the viewfinder just creates a proper balance with the camera being the fulcrum. I now know why sigma has been on my don't support list for so long.
    I'll only give them a chance if they ever create an actual designed for m4/3 lens instead of the rehashes they keep flogging. So much promise on theory, so much ineptitude in practice. Should be the sigma motto.
