What about the Olympus vf-1 35mm equivelant OVF.

Way cheaper than a leica and good quality.

here it is at B&H $83

i think the ken rockwell review said it was about a 35mm equivalent lens (17mm on the ep1) so the OV should work. Wish it was black

Sounds like a decent option to consider. Thanks for sharing.

Does anyone know if you can take pictures with the LCD turn off? as in when you use a viewfinder? Sorry if this is obvious.

Do not think you can turn the LCD off. I use one of those rangefinder/sight people mount on their shot gun( to shoot bird) to get the approximate composite, is only about USD20-40, you can mark the crop on the len if you need to see the crop. I am getting too old, cannot really see the detail on LCD if it is less then 1 foot away anyway.

I've been considering picking one of these up a EOS-M ever since it's gone on sale at B&H but the one thing that keeps holding me back is the viewfinder.

And spending an extra $80+ for one seems to defeat the purpose of picking up a eos-m for cheap.

So now I'm kinda just in a boat either waiting for the next EOS-M to come out or just might the bullet and grab one... ARGH...
