q camera viewfinders

Do any of the Q cameras have viewfinders? They seem to be really nice from what I have read here.

Only if you buy one that fits in the hot shoe but its a fixed optic not connected electrically to the camera. In other words its useful for the prime lens but much less so for everything else. I use one mostly when making video.

You're welcome. I should have included this link to the Pentax (and pricey!) viewfinder.

Wow! that's interesting. Well, since I am still learning my K3 Dh prolly wouldn't be happy buying me another present. Thank you for the information.

Of course, that expensive Pentax Q viewfinder is only the right magnification for the 01 Prime lens on the Q or Q10; it'll be too narrow on the Q7 or Q-S1.

I see a variety of older hotshoe viewfinders on eBay; it's worth taking a look there periodically.
