    This may read a bit redundant, but which one do you think "works" better on an EP3?VF2?VF3?. I own a few OM lenses, plus I'm used to VF on SLRs. I felt I could improved my shots with VF but I kind of at lost which among the two should I get. (Wonder why Oly produced two VF kind for PENs) Thanks in advance for you replies!:43:

    VF2 is the better EVF. The only "downside" is that it is slightly larger, but if you're going to go with an EVF in the first place, go for the best option (IMO).

    VF2 is far better than VF3 especially if you use manual focus. Some people complain that VF2 doesn't have lock , it falls easily but mine doesn't. Mine is on my camera 100%, so I never put it off and doesn't make the hotshoe loose.

    VF3 has low resolution but it has lock. In some countries, the price between VF2 and VF3 is the same or they don't have much difference. If it is so, I suggest to pick the VF2.

    I pick VF2 because you can see very clearly and it is 100% coverage. It pleases my eyes. As I often say, looking through any viewfinders makes me feel like into another world.
