Just curcious about this: http://www.olympus-europa.com/consumer/198_VA-1.htm

"" The VA-1 offers a twin solution for capturing unique shots, enabling focusing to be carried out from virtually any position by offering full size-view and 2x magnification. It is very useful when using telephoto, close-up and macro lenses.

The VA-1 fits over the camera's optical viewfinder. Its viewing tube rotates a full 360°, with click-stop positions every 90° for even the most difficult shooting angles.
A built-in diopter corrector ring allows adjustments between +3 to -5 diopters.
The VA-1 can be attached to all E-System cameras with the supplied adapter rings. ""

Being an owner of the e500, was wondering if anyone is using this yet and what their opion was?

I have tried it on the E-300, but I didn't buy it because I got a stiff neck from using it...it would be great if it was 45degrees instead of 90degrees.

One more thing (although it wasn't an issue for me) that in 2x mode part of the viewfinder is cut off, including the display.
