    so i have an old model oly epm1 and id want to get a viewfinder for it. what would be the best model viewfinder to get? also, would the viewfinders electronic readings work with a manual lens like the slr magic 12mm/t1.6?

    I use the clip-on evf (vf-2) on mine - works nicely. The 'bump' takes a little-while to get used to - after a long time of bringing the e-pm1 up to my face to take a picture and then realising there is no vf, I now find it equally strange to bring it back up to take a picture after getting used to holding it outstretched. Definitely makes macro shooting or shooting in bright-light much nicer.

    I can't actually recall if you get the full display in the evf - I think you do but I'll have to confirm. You basically see what you see on the rear display but through the evf from an imaging perspective.
