Perfect 35mm Viewfinder for Vintage Rangefinders - Nikon, Leica, etc.

  • Summary: Let's get the bad parts out of the way first. It's all plastic and dust can get inside. Also, there's no way to take it part for cleaning. And it's a little expensive. Aside from those cons, I absolutely love this viewfinder. Its viewing window is very big and bright.

An excellent accessory for candid/street photographers.

  • Summary: The angle-of-view is equivalent to Olympus' 17mm lens. It is primarily for frame composition, but I have noticed that there is a slight parallax when using with M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8. I believe that the lens it is paired with is the older M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 (pancake.

Not exactly what I wanted but a good product regardless.

  • Summary: This Viewfinder is exactly as advertised and does have viewing issues if you use anything larger than a pancake lens, which of course I did not have on my trip to Vietnam recently. However I did know this when I purchased and otherwise served it's intended purpose for my trip.

Very good viewfinder and excellent value

  • Summary: A quality optical viewfinder makes all the difference when using your mirrorless digital camera. The LCD screen on most cameras works well inside, but outside in bright light becomes almost useless.

  • Summary: I got this VF-1 with the E-P1 kit set, after selling the E-P1 with 17mm pancake it has been sitting around gathering dust, until the EOS-M fire sale which it find its use again. the 22mm (35mm) is pretty perfect for this Viewfinder except slightly taller frame with the 4:3 format.

Value and Precision

DMM-NH, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very close copy of the Leica 35mm Brightline Finder. It functions accurately when used in connection with the proper lens. As such, it is a very good value. The proper lens, by the way, is the Zuiko 17mm f/2.8.
