    I don't know much about flashes, and from my reading I am a bit confused. Here is what I want to know. I decided to get the VF-2, and I am pretty sure it will be a permanent fixture on my camera. Is there a way to fire the flash with the EVF attached? If so, does it have to be an Olympus branded flash?

    Some of the PEN bodies have a built-in flash that you can use as a trigger/commander at the same time as the EVF, on the other bodies both the EVF and the clip-on flash use the same hotshoe...so you get to use one or the other.
