    Hi Folks,

    I curious if anyone has use the VF4 finder with the E-M1.

    I would like to use my E-M1 with the VF4 to allow straight down viewing through the VF4 finder.

    When I had a VF4 I found it worked fine. I sold the VF4 with my E-P5 and haven't missed it on the E-M1 - the flip up screen works well enough.

    So you used it on the E-M1 with no problems?

    My VF2 works fine on my E-M1 for exactly the purpose you mentioned, so I don't see why the VF4 wouldn't work fine as well. You just need to remove the accessory port cover under the hot shoe on the E-M1.
