Default Desperate for VF-2 Viewfinder

Does anyone have any idea where I can find the VF-2 electronic viewfinder for the Olympus E-PL1? It's out of stock at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus's own Emporium and at every local and semi-local camera store I can find. I'm sure it'll turn up sooner or later... but I figured I'd take a shot at asking Steve's best & brightest if they had a line on where I could find a VF-2 now.

I got mine in Germany, don't think that will help. But I think your best best is just wait for a bit longer. Is should be back instock soon. You can find them on ebay from some shops in Taiwan. But I would not recommend that. Import duties and stuff.

Well... I was going to go after the VF-2 on Craig's list... but I found one at Camera Land, a small but well-established shop on Lexington Ave. between 51st and 52nd Streets in Manhattan. The place is only a few blocks from where I work. The VF-2 is the best electronic viewfinder I have even seen.
