Great...I just bought the VF-3....it is in the mail, and they come out with a VF-4???

 Same here, but I'm happy with it none the less .

Mine just came in the box today. I've not opened it yet.

Is the Canon 5D3 a 3.2 viewer...that the new VF-4 would fit the 5D3 better?  In the videos I saw of the VF3..seemed it was a very tight fit but you could see the full viewfinder...?

Hmm...decisions, decisions. Also, guessing now...that this sale price (I got mine for $120) was due to this new version being released??  Is the VF4 available now? Price'?

I'll look too...but input appreciated.

Can you post some pics of your rig? Parts list? I'd be interested in seeing what you came up with!!

I finally got the last piece of the rig.

Here's a shot from the side.

BTW, this rig cost me $1,567. But the Zacuto EVF Pro was $950 of that. So this rig, without an EVF, would cost $617. That compares to the $1,149 RedRock "DSLR Field Cinema Standard Bundle v2"... pretty favorably.  8)

I can't say this is the best rig ever. I would prefer to have a better shoulder pad and EVF attachment. But with the money I saved, I can buy more essential gear.

Here's another view. The articulating arm of the EVF actually makes for a decent grip (and kickstand!). Too bad it won't work for handheld. I will need to find another solution for handheld: either super expensive Zacuto mount for my EVF -or- one of these bargain optical viewfinder options mentioned in previous posts.
