    The Pentax Q is a mirrorless camera but not micro 4/3. There is a section on this forum for other camera systems which would include the Q. There is also an excellent Pentax user forum and there would be many Q owners on it.

    Do you have a 47mm or the 01 Standard Prime? The 01 prime is actually an 8.5mm lens that has a similar angle of view as a 47mm would on a full frame camera{old 35mm film}. Pentax makes an optical view finder that matches the angle of view of the 01 prime.

    PENTAX - Viewfinder O-VF1 47mm

    You could fit any add-on optical view finder for a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera{it would be close enough}. However they will not be that much cheaper than the one from Pentax.
