Yes, I've had both of these, and yes, I should be able to decide, but I just can't, and I want to get the rebate, so I need to order today. I need a VF for my E-PL5 (with large grip) for when I shoot with the 100-300. VF3: CHEAP! good enough for framing. Locks on. A bit smaller. VF2: Can better MF with legacy lenses (FD 50, Fujian, CV40 are my legacy lenses). But bigger, doesn't lock on, about $100 more. Ugh! Which one?? Any help in the form of dope-slaps is greatly appreciated.
