Another entry here but this one is strictly photographic: I purchased a wonderful old Olympus VF-2 viewfinder from fellow Cameraderie member and photographer extraordinaire @mnhoj and it arrived today!--

The silver color matches the original silver of the E-P2--

I've always liked the classic lines and design of this finder which seem to match those of the camera--

The big soft eyecup on the rear is functional for the viewing experience--

It rotates up a full 90 degrees - just like the EVF's on my GX8 (and also its predecessor, the GX7) - a feature which can come in very handy for certain shooting angles--

And looking through the EVF instead of the rear screen....well, let's just say it's a different experience--

I had a VF-2 years and years ago which I used with my old Olympus E-PL2, but I'd forgotten what a fine viewfinder it is having this one for my E-P1 is going to expand some horizons for me---
If you read this post, John --- my thanks again!
I got Fogworx Extreme High Density Fog Juice. Which is what Amazon had listed as most frequently bought with the machine I got. I'll let you know how it works out.What type of solution are you going to use with it? I've got one of the cheap units sold at Halloween time but the literature mentions that the fog "may" leave a film on things.
I am glad to hear that I'm not the only one with more than one camera and more than one bike.Technically a bicycle isn't photo gear, I know that - but over the years, many of my favorite photographs and images have come while I was taking bike rides, so that's my justification for including this. It's a 'gravel' bicycle - a Salsa Journeyman - which I purchased, lightly used and beautifully maintained, from a cool individual who is both a hardcore cyclist himself, and a certified Mercedes diesel engine mechanic - which means he knows how to take care of gear.

The only problem with getting another bicycle....means reordering how they (it and my other bikes) are stored my old outbuilding-garage. Problems, problems, problems
A minor note: I've never ridden or owned a bicycle with 650b-sized wheels and tires before - the classic diameter of old-school French randonneur cycles - and it's really a rather fun size to bike on: surprisingly nimble, considering their girth.

First run through today. No residue. Lots and lots of fog in around 30 seconds indoors.
