    Wanna summarize it for those of us who are a little rusty on our Japanese? :)

    Adam, luckily a picture is worth a thousand words....

    that image means get the EP2 cause the finder is awesome....
    I'm sure anyone that reads Japanese will verify my findings....

    What I found from the images, given that my assumption is correct, is that not only do some give a bigger and better overall image, they also provide a much greater range of viewing options. For example, the Olympus VF-2 provides 11 screen options whereas, the Ricoh VF-1 provides only two.

    Cheers

    Yeah I was wondering why they don't show any zoomed in pics on the GF1 section?
