Ok, had to check them out on my camera before biting the bullet. I was able to look through the VF-3 on the XZ a couple of weeks back. Its an understatement to say that I was less than impressed. A small, barely usable screen which to my mind was not going to do the job. This Saturday past, I was in a different camera store, and they had the VF-2 in stock, and the guy let me try it on the XZ... I was really blown away. Big, bright, and beautiful. So, I thought I should also check the VF on the OM-D. It seemed to me that it was somewhere between the two in terms of quality... So.. end result... I'll be getting the VF-2, not the VF-3, and may well sell all my Pentax gear to fund a move to MFT. Damn but that VF-3 is gorgeous! Big, chunky, and gorgeous.
