Zacuto Viewfinder

Has anyone used a Zacuto viewfinder on a GH2? Any tips, tricks or problems?

I would not expect too many users for that since the GH2 has the best EVF of any camera at 1.53mp vs 1mp LCD for Canon. I use a clone of the Zacuto on my Pentax K-7.

I have to admit, I despise viewfinders. Never used them. Until this camera. I actually use it from time to time.

Re: Zacuto Viewfinder

Jim, I have a Zacuto 3X which I feel is too powerful for the low resolution of the GH2 lcd. I don’t know if the 2.5X would be much better.

Plus 1. I have one but the viewfinder for the GH2 is excellent so I use my Zacuto for my Nikon D7000.
Zacuto does make GH2 frame for the snap on Z viewfinder,
However Z viewfinder does make focusing a breeze ....they really fit the eye well.
