    My 10 year old cybershot is 2/3 smaller than the EPL1 and has a built-in viewfinder. It is possible to have a smaller mu4/3 with the same feature , right? P1017386.JPG

    The only real limitations I can think of are sensor size and lens mount - they take up a set amount of space. :biggrin:

    I was thinking the same thing about my Canon SD1000 just yesterday. Thing was like $120 and has a built-in EVF. Why is the cheapest ad-on for our system so outrageously expensive?

    Are you sure about that? My google fu is telling me that it's a cheapo optical viewfinder that doesn't offer full coverage.
     
  5. How small are you prepared to have the rear screen be? i.e. Take a look at what Sony had to do to add an eye-level finder to the NEX 7.

    You know - that's possible. I've only looked through it a couple times - no need for manual focus with adapted lenses on that thing ...
