Nice deal with the viewfinder included, but I never understood something about it.

The GV-1 viewfinder is 21mm equivalent while the GR is 28mm. Even the description for the GV-1 says it is for use with the optional GW1-21 wide conversion lens.

The GV-1 External Viewfinder for more comfortable framing....
LCD's on digital cameras are not always ideal for monitoring dark environments and fast-moving subjects. But the GV-1 optical viewfinder solves this problem.

It mounts on the hot shoe almost directly above the lens and offers a framing guide for capturing a 21mm-equivalent field of view when using the optional GW-1 21mm wide conversion lens.

True, it must be a mistake. The GV-2 mini is the one with 28mm field of view. Ricoh GV-2 Mini Viewfinder for GR Digital Cameras 175093

Huh - now when I look at the description of the GV-1 on another vendor site, it says it has both 21mm and 28mm frames -

The Ricoh GV-1 External Viewfinder mounts to the Ricoh GXR camera system, including the GR Digital Camera. Simply attach the GV-1 via the hot shoe and view your intended shots using the 21mm and 28mm frames (35mm equivalent). When you prefer to compose your images using the camera's LCD display, the GV-1 can be stored in the included case.

Yup, it's got markings for both 21mm and 28mm.

I don't know how else to view these forums and sites without a PC. All I know is when I click on the link that Adam posted in the first post of this thread the original deal is there as it was in the beginning. I'm pretty sure a lot of these deals that Adam posted must be accessed by the links in this forum.

Here is what I am seeing right now -
