    Amazon.com: Olympus VF-3 Electronic Viewfinder (Silver): OLYMPUS: Camera & Photo VF-3

    Amazon.com: Olympus Elec View Finder VF-2 for PEN cameras: Electronics VF-2

    Olympus VF-3 Optical Viewfinder, Silver V329110SU000 VF-3

    Olympus VF-2 Optical Viewfinder, Silver 260058 VF-2


    I have emailed Cameta about this
    http://www.cameta.com/Olympus-PEN-V...-Four-Thirds-Digital-Cameras-Silver-61871.cfm

    They show it at the regular retail price but say it is after the $80 off so I think they just forgot to lower the price. If they do drop the price this will be the best deal since it includes a few extras...

    I think they will. If not you can return and rebuy.

    Yeah, Amazon is really good about returns. If they won't credit you, just return it and order at the new price.

    I wonder how much better the new viewfinder will be. I assume that is why these are being cleared out.

    Does anyone know if one of these would work on both a gf3 and an lx5?

    Thank You

    No, Olympus EVFs only fit on Olympus. GF3 cannot accept any EVF. LX5 can use Panasonic's LVF1.

    +1! I'd snap up a GX-1 if I could use my VF3 on it.

    Price difference between vf2 and vf3 is $70. Is it worth it to buy vf2 or get vf3 and save $70?

    The locking mechanism of the VF3 is worth getting though the VF2 will give you better details but either one there worth getting.
