I have not received it yet (March 29).

That is very long!

Attila, how long did you have to wait for it?


My finder arrived yesterday, so I could pick it up at the customs office today.

I have to say that I am positively surprised. It works really well and in contrast to yours, Attila, it fits OK on my NEX-3:

I think we have same size, but still unsure please link here what did your order , mine is made for Canon 7D. I think this is an essential tool for all Next owners, if you find a perfect match that would be great and other owners able to order it.

Same than mine, one other if somebody like to order from Ebay , seller is trustworthy I buy from him long time ago.

I just look details again, they are not same. What I did link first and Carsten did order look different. Seems that is right choice.

OK, but I didn't do anything to get the right one. Question

I used today in short while, it really works!! Very Happy
I wear bifocals with NEX5 and GF1, so no problem with no diopter adjustment
for LCD viewer/magnifier.

with CV Nokton 40/1.4

LCD viewer makes focus easier, and sometime you do not need to enlarge
screen image to focus.

Hi there
very intresting post. Can someone explain to a new comer what this device does? I though at the beginning that it converts the back screen to a viewfinder... From the screenshots though I can see that is also used to cameras that also have an embedded viewfinder.

What is it about then?

Regards
Alex

camera rear screen enlarged a bit plus in rear lcd in shadow, both real benefits outside. EVF is usable if you take off viewer from camera.
