          Comments about Ricoh VF-2 External LCD Viewfinder:

          I'm very happy with it! Looks great on the Ricoh GXR, and does it's job.
          Even though the screen inside is quite small, it helps me focus a lot better and also helps with stabilization. Worth the money.

            Comments about Ricoh VF-2 External LCD Viewfinder:

            It's a good addition to the camera, without it under the bright light it's very hard to see with the LCD screen. I like I can tilt the viewfinder, so I can place my camera on a very low ground, so I can get a better perspective on certain shoot.

            Comments about Ricoh VF-2 External LCD Viewfinder:

            I'd like to give this more stars, but they really just need to squeeze more performance out if it. I still would recommend it and find it useful, and in contrast to the Olympus VF-2 for Pen, which performs really well but is just too huge and really compromises the body, this one fits tidily into the profile of the body and is not so obtrusive.

              Zero complaints with this purchase, I use it on my GXR with both A12 lenses and the S10 lens. It makes composition in direct sunlight much more pleasurable over the Lcd. The pixels and refresh rate are decent, I also like how they integrated the level inside .
