    Voigtlander Brightline for DP1 - current user comments?

    I am considering getting the Cosina Voigtlander 28mm for the DP1 and would like to know how any current users like it, pluses, minuses etc. I have never used an OVF on this type of camera but I really miss holding the camera to my eye. Thanks!

    I have it and it's great.... Very bright & contrasty.
    The framelines are about 95% accurate...

    Thanks Don for the feedback, I ordered it this morning from CameraQuest. I found myself yesteday trying to raise the Sigma to my eyes and realized that this is hard habit to break. When using a tripod and soon to be acquired cable release from Richard, no problem to use the lcd with Hoodloupe, it works very well.

    Well, it's the best way to use the assets from the DP1...
    Even the E-P1 doesn't do it as well with a finder because no way to set the hyper focal Accurately....
