    Comments about Ricoh GV-2 Mini External Viewfinder:

    It's nicer than you think. The finish feels like a powder coat and the whole thing is solid. Though the foot is plastic like the rest of it. Tight fit into the GR hotshoe, no worries of loosing it. And it's super compact and light. Obviously not the largest view, but bright frame lines and clear optics. If buying at retail, might consider the Voigtlander 28, that one is all metal and will outlast you. But it will be larger/heavier too. This one is a perfect fit for GR.

    Far too expensive

    Comments about Ricoh GV-2 Mini External Viewfinder:

    The price is rediculously high for an optical viewfinder, even though its good quality

        I know. This is a pricey accessory. I love the ability to be able to shoot from my eye without holding the camera out to see the lcd screen. This is great for sunny days when the screen looks washed out too.

        Beware, if you are using this for up-close street photography, you have to adjust the framing because it will be a little off from what you see through he viewfinder. At normal shooting distances, it works perfectly.
