    Hi.....

    Have any of you got the Live Viewfinder (DMW-LVF1) to go with your Lumix. Before I rush out and get one, I would be grateful of some initial thoughts on the item.... for example viewing the screen resolution, the diopter adjustment, and the displayed info...

    Many thanks....

    Mal.

  2. I have it on my GF1 and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Well to be honest it is worse than the one you get in the G1 and G2 and the Olympus one but it's not bad at all. The colours look fairly unsaturated but the resolution isn't to bad and if using auto focus then it's worth while having. If manual focusing the detail isn't really enough to be 100% accurate but I guess if using larger apertures then you could get used to getting accurate focusing.

    The display info is very readable and clear, it's all there.

    In a nutshell it's much better than I thought!
