But doesn't your glasses lens bump into the EVF? Or do you have a boot around the EVF?

it has a rubber boot around it, and my glasses set right on it. No problem with the olympus vf2. I have tried the gf1 and the evf, and it does have a rubber boot around it also. And I put my glasses right on it and did not have any issue.

The VF2 works great, specially with those MF lenses. I don't even need to enlarge the image in order to accurately manual focus on any subject. However, it does increase the size of the camera significantly.

Yeah, but what about all those times when you can't get your face close to the camera, like when it's resting on a muddy ground or reaching for something that's 7 feet off the ground....huh????

that is where a flip screen comes in handy on the gh1, g1, g2 and gh2.

The VF-2 also flips (up/down), which can be helpful if you are down on your knees. That swivel LCD is one of the biggest pluses of the G1.
