            Glad I Got it

            By Oldmose

            from Los Angeles

            Comments about Leica Visoflex EVF2 Electronic Accessory Viewfinder for X2 and M Cameras:

            Definitely glad I bought this now because I probably never would have got around to it.
            Having the eye piece makes a big difference for me especially in bright sunlight.
            And for framing.
            The adjustable rotation is very nice too especiallly when trying to be discrete.
            Looking down instead of directly at someone people dont notice you as much.
            Its not cheap but ya got to have it so ta gotta pay the price.

                Comments about Leica Visoflex EVF2 Electronic Accessory Viewfinder for X2 and M Cameras:

                Without the EVF2, rapid focusing was a challenge, and led to a percentage of my pictures being out of focus. The EVF2 incorporates a brighter image, a magnification component, direct links to the focusing ring, an adjustable diopter, and focus highlighting. This product completely removes focusing challenges and puts the user in complete control. Regrettably, it is not the most attractive addition and it does take something away from the classic lines of the Leica M(240). Nevertheless, its usefulness greatly outweighs its challenge to Leica's classic aesthetics. It is particularly useful in conjunction with longer focal length (>50mm) lenses. Overall, an excellent, albeit not cheap accessory.

                  Comments about Leica Visoflex EVF2 Electronic Accessory Viewfinder for X2 and M Cameras:

                  I purchased this EVF for my Leica M240. Although the M240 has Live View, there are times, (for example) in bright sunlight or when doing close-up photography with the Leica M Macro Adapter, where an isolated view through an EVF would enhance your focusing.

                  Yes it is made by Olympus, but heck, I did purchase a Leica, so I bought the Leica one.

                  I'm actually using it more than I thought that I would, so I am pleased with my purchase.

                      I purchased this item in advance of getting my 21mm (so this review is based on how it works with a 50mm), as I'm a highly technical personI had no problems adjusting my M(240) to work with it but I would recumbent that any one that uses this view finder set the magnification at no more than 5x if you are using auto focus assist. other than that remember alway to press the little button (in the EVF) to see thru it and the press is again every time you wish to review the image, I also suggest that you set the auto review time to ZERO (off what ever) as it takes a bit for the I'm,age to show in the EVF. I'll have my 21mm this week can wait to see how well it works with that.

                        This accessory is necessary, if you're critical on focusing on critical areas of your subject such as eye/s in portraiture or for Fine Art Photography. If one has to rely on critical focusing of subjects, this is what you need. You save on not needing to buy an eyepiece for your camera anymore.

                          Comments about Leica Visoflex EVF2 Electronic Accessory Viewfinder for X2 and M Cameras:

                          I purchased the EVF2 at the same time as my Leica M (240) order, based on recommendations on the web. I am an experienced Leica M-series (film) user, and enjoy using the optical rangefined. I wanted the EVF2 for two reasons: I purchased an M 21 f1.4 ASPH lens, and that means viewing either through the EVF2 or via the monitor on the back of the camera. Also, the EVF2 gives a clear view of both the exact framing of the subject area and of the stopped-down image, based on your chosen settings. It also alows you to use the focus aids, which are very helpful, especially when choosing a narrow depth of field, for example with Summilux lenses, or with the Noctilux. The EVF2 works well. As others have noted, the diopter adjustment ring is easy to move, so you have to check it periodically to be sure it is set where you want it to be. Apart from that, I have no issues with the unit.

                                For those of us who don't see as well as we'd like, this is a valuable addition to the M 240. It is a huge help with focusing. Unfortunately it uses the hot shoe and can't be used with the flash.

                                    I use it on a leica and it is great for composing/viewing.
                                    Very clear and sharp. Nice snug fit.
                                    It is too bad it is twice as expensive as the Olympus vf2,
                                    and there is no difference between it and the olympus, except
                                    for the name printed on it. So, for it to say Leica you spend
                                    twice what you can get it for. If you don't care it says Olympus,
                                    then you can save some money.

                                        Love the EVF2 - if you are not familiar with rangefinder cameras...this will help a great deal...the only downside is price...

                                              it is too pricey! It is a device you absolutely need when taking photos under the sun. I think it should be a built in feature on M240.

                                                    Converts the camera from a point and shoot to a proper tool for good photography. A must have for bright light, good composition, low light and everything in between. A bit expensive but once you have it you will soon forget about the cost. B&H is a great store to get your gear.

                                                      I use the EVF2 more or less as my standard viewfinder on the X2. Strictly speaking it is not "necessary" as the large screen is very useful for composing shots, but it provides a much more intimate connection to the camera and, particularly in connection with candids of people interacting, allows me to track the action and get a shot (for example) where no one is blinking, looking away or being unphotogenic. What is really great about this item is that it turns my light-weight, compact and relatively unassuming camera into a powerful DSLR because with it, I can see what the lens sees. Plus, it piggybacks the X2's power supply but does not drain the battery very much at all; also, in high or low light situations, it is many times more reliable than the big screen, plus, it is amply, internally lit. In short it's a pleasure.OK, it may be a bit pricey, but as is the case with many high-value items, it delivers.

                                                          I am so used to looking through a view finder. The X2 was my 2nd point and shoot digital cam. The first was the Sony S70 bought over 10 years ago now (many years ago retired). Since then I have owned 5 Canon DSLRs up to my current go to cam the 5d.
                                                          So basically looking at the back of the camera screen does not feel that natural to me.
                                                          With this view finder the quality is amazing for an electronic screen. It looks just as good as optical to me, but with the added bonus of being able to display all of the onscreen information and menus etc.
                                                          The refresh rate is fast and never lags. When you look through, the image is quite big, hard to exactly say how much but comparable to the view size of an slr. (this was my biggest question about buying this as there is not much info on how big the screen will appear when you look through.) I am very glad I took the leap of faith and got this as it has completely changed the X2 for me.
                                                          I enjoyed the camera with out the view finder, but now love it with it. I use it 90% of the time I use the camera.
                                                          My only gripe is that it takes the hot shoe. I have pocket wizards for my canon gear and I can trigger remote flashes in 'basic trigger' mode with the X2. If I want to use external flash, I have to give up the viewfinder. Not a huge deal.
                                                          Just get it, you will be happy you did!!

                                                            This is not essential, but I prefer to compose my images using a viewfinder so I purchased it. I use reading glasses that I don't always wear, so the viewfinder, for me, is essential, especially if focusing manually. Also, the ability to turn the viewfinder up to shoot is a plus.
