Kudos to Olympus. I sent my vf2 in for warranty repair on a minor issue (it wouldn't click into the down position) on January 8, and it's back in my hands just 9 days later. I was planning on selling the VF2 to help fund the OMD, but after shooting macros for the last few days, I felt the evf on the em5 wasn't as helpful as the vf2 had been. Now that the vf2 is back, I mounted it on the em5 (which turns off the built in evf), and did a comparison. To my eye, the vf2 is clearly superior. I'm going to keep it for macro work... and just in case Oly introduces my dream PEN, which will have... the new 16mp sensor a tilt lcd in 3x2 format a built-in flash (to trigger remotes) the rangefinder body style It's heresy, but, I'll gladly swap my em5 for an upgraded pl2. I had hopes for the pl5, but it's missing the bif and has a wide format lcd, better suited for movies. Maybe the ep5 will come closer to my dream set of features.
