Olympus has quietly introduced a new add-on electronic viewfinder (EVF) for the XZ-1 compact and all PEN cameras equipped with an accessory port. The VF-3 has a resolution of 920,000 dots, which is somewhat lower than that of the existing Olympus VF-2 but much higher than the 202,000 dots of the Panasonic DMW-LVF1. The VF-3’s 0.97x magnification is also less than the VF-2’s value of 1.15x, but it still offers 100% frame coverage. Unlike the VF-2, the new VF-3 has a shoe-lock mechanism. Pricing and availability to be confirmed.
