Rated 5 out of 5 by RXIchiban Right angle tilt is convenient
I have to admit that I had grown accustomed to the LCD view while I awaited delivery of the EV1MK, but it has a number of advantages over most built-in viewfinders which I will relate to you. The viewfinder can be removed and that makes the RX1 easier to use for street photography because, without the EV1 sticking up, the camera is far less obtrusive. The EV1MK can be tilted, making it a right-angle viewfinder that is convenient for above crowd, knee high, and macrophotography. This viewfinder has the highest resolution of any EVF that I have ever seen and that makes manual focusing a snap. Blacks are black and, in fact, all colors are true. When you look away from the EV1, it turns the LCD screen on. Also, you have the option to switch it off with the button on the left side. The diopter correction slides to accommodate personal visual acuity. The case can be attached/detached to your belt or the camerastrap with its Velcro flap, so it can be handy. It is sturdy and has a snug fit to the hotshoe. 100% view shows everything. I recommend using the leveler that shows up in the EV1 (or on the LCD) because you may get lost in an image that looks three dimensional even though you are seeing through one eye.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leebos Works well
Works very well for bright sunny days when the LCD washes out and becomes almost useless. Wish it would tilt down as well as up. Sure wish I had it on a recent trip to AZ, NM, & NV. I could have gotten some better shots.
Way overpriced but it will fit other sony camera's as well as my HX50V.
