    But not to photography....Live in the Atlanta Georgia Metro area. Just picked up a refurbished Oly Pen E-P3 with the standard 14-42mm lens. Have gotten Nikon, Minolta, Konica & Leica M39 adapters for other legacy lenses I own. Found this forum researching a problem with infinity focus on a Konica lens (turns out it's the adapter...). Will post any questions I have to the group as they become a problem. Looks like I'll have to get the EFV for the camera as I don't like using the rear screen. My niche is macro & I think the EFV will aid me there with this camera...

    Welcome aboard! I love my E-P3, it's a great camera. You can occasionally find good deals on used VFs here on the forum. Enjoy!

    Hi Scott!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have an EFV mounted on an EPL-1 and it makes all the difference to me - I can't hold a camera steady while using the rear screen handheld. I can't recommend it's use for macro work, as I do very little in that area.
