    After much procrastination I believe I have decided that the EPL-5 with the VF-2 is for me. The only thing I can't determine for sure is how far the viewfinder extends above the top of the camera. Can someone please provide me with that info?

    TIA,

    I'd make fun of how that looks if I didn't have one with the 45 sitting on my desk.

    Looks funny to moi. Maybe you can skip the middleman and just plug in the EVF directly into the PL25mm.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Picture makes it look like it's about half as high as the camera. Could you supply a dimension? I use a vest with large pockets, but this makes me think I might need to consider something else.

    The E-M5's built in EVF is a bit more compact. The VF-2 adds some height.

    It adds 32mm in terms of height.
