    Does anyone have this combination? If so, how does it look? I found a good deal on Craigslist for a silver VF-2, but my E-PL5 is black. I don't want it to look to stupid, so I am debating on whether to buy it. If you have this combo, can you post a pic so I can see what it looks like?

    Looks pretty good. Thanks got posting the pic. I guess I will pick up the vf-2, it was only $160, new in the box.

    The VF-2 isn't a favorable fashion statement under the best of circumstances. :redface: I have the same combo as RT, however, and it works really well.

    My only issue with the silver VF-2 is that it's easier to scratch up.

    Spray paint over the silver!:eek:

    OK maybe not but you could use some of that vinyl wrap or camera leatherette and cover it or part of it.

    One thing I will say is that the VF-2 is one great little accessory! If you wear glasses get the big eyecup to prevent sunlight spill at certain angles. I love my VF to death and am looking at getting a second one for my other body.

    After Labor Day, the VF-2 is good, but silver is out.

    Got my VF-2 and all I can say is WOW! What a difference it makes. Everything is so much easier to see rather than using the LCD. Especially with my eyes not being as good as they use to be. :)

    Being at the far end of the 50's, I find that itty-bitty screen something of a problem. The VF-2 has more accurate colors and helps stabilize the camera when holding it up to your face.
