Olympus VF Works With Q?

Am I reading this right? (MK blinks...) I can use my Olympus Pen EVF-3 with a QS1? I'm seeing that some people are maybe OEV's in two different threads and I'm going :Whoah: Is this really possible? If so that is just the bomb as I already have one and it will save me a bundle!!!! Yes? I thought they were brand specific!

Nope, never mind, I'm reading on and it's the non-electrical version apparently, darn...

That is an electronic viewfinder, the Q-S1 only supports optical viewfinders.

Yeah, I realized that once I kept on reading the whole thread. That $200 price tag for the Pentax OVF is a bit daunting though. I'm kind of wondering if my Seagull Magnifying VF might not work. Otherwise I'm looking at others. No way I'm doing $200 for the Pentax one if I can find something more reasonable...

I just found these in an article online, the writer seems to think they're decent for the $$$...Anyone used these?

I'm thinking I need to find one of those old Yashica OVF's....
