Thanks Peter,

if I may ask for more information :

1 do you have to leave the camera on all the time in order to have a peep through the VF
2 if yes,  how long does a battery last in that wait/sleep mode
3 if not, how long does the camera take to fully wake up when you turn it on
4 is there a shutter lag
5 any reported issues with the lack of a shutter? (dust or other impediment?)

Thanks in anticiaption

Rebonjour Philippe,

It is indeed odd. Some people and the majority who bought the camera love the VF, me included. Particularly in manual focus mode it is the best I have found yet, you can precisely focus even difficult lenses like the Summiluxes that pose problem on the M8. Other people hate it; very few sold the camera again because of it. I ordered the camera without having seen it. Like you, I could not find one with a loaded battery.

I still haven't managed to see through the VF; no shop here has one with a loaded battery when they have scores on display, as if they had decided NOT to sell any ...
