I just picked up a Panasonic LVF1 form a board member (despite having heard all the bad things about it). I figured it was an EVF where my GF2 didn't have one and it would enable me to shoot in bright light a bit more easily. Well...it arrived today it arrived today and much to my surprise it does NOT suck. In fact I quite like it. Yes, it has it's flaws but overall I am quite pleased. I say this as the owner of a Panasonic G2 and former owner of an E-PL1+VF2 combo. First off, the LVF1 is freaking tiny. It suits the small size of the GF2 quite well. A comlaint I always had about the VF2 is that is uuuuugly and attaching one to an Olympus Pen body was a bit like putting a sidecar on a Bugatti. The VF2s size was also an issue as it made the E-PL1 quite ungainly (even compared to the G2). Next is the fabled crappy image quality of the LVF1...you know, it really isn't THAT bad. Yes it's nowhere near as sharp as the VF2 or built-in EVF on the G2 but so far I am finding quite easy to use and focus with. Now, it is a bit small but given it's very small physical size it's not all that surprising. I have even found it easy to manually focus with (and I wear glasses and have a vision issue with my dominant eye). It it perfect...oh my gosh no...the diopter adjust is way too easy to hit and the color looks a bit washed out (I'd love it if I could set the LVF1 to BW) but for a bit more than $100 (used) it's a heck of a deal.
