EVF Compatibility: Does the Olympus VF4 Work on the Leica M Typ 240?

I struggle to understand how a rebadged Olympus EVF can be $499: the Leica X2 EVF2 Electronic Accessory Viewfinder with its 1.4 megapixel display is allegedly the same as the $249 Olympus VF-2 Electronic Viewfinder. Does it do the same job? Same functionality, same quality? This is what I’ve heard, but I don’t know for for a fact.

But Olympus also has the about $279 2.36-megapixel Olympus VF-4 Electronic Viewfinder and I’m wondering if it might not only be compatible, but offer a superior viewing experience, even if the signal from the camera remains the same. With computers, screens can generally accept various signal resolutions, so it’s a long shot, but maybe.

So if a Leica M Typ 240 owner out there knows one way or another, please let me know.

Update: the Leica M Typ 240 does NOT support the VF-4 as of July 2013.

I have both, the Leica and a silver Olympus VF-2 (bought the Olympus for my silver M 240). Completely identical.

The only thing I noticed, but I may have used the Olympus more, is that the hot shoe connection (plastic foot or whatever you want to call it) becomes loose quite quickly, so the EVF falls off easily. The original Leica feels tighter.

Bad design anyways. That wart that sticks out is prone to get knocked off. So again, I used the silver M 240 more than my black and hence the silver Olympus EVF got knocked about more than the black Leica.

DIGLLOYD: that's good news— I’ll save myself the $250 and/or one can buy two for the same price for a spare.
