Look for one with a M4 finder installed. Those were the best VFs Leica ever made, in my opinion.

The more I use my Pen-F, the more I come to like it. Once you get it set up, and because of the Olympus menus it IS a mind-numbing task to set it up (so many options!), it's great and quick to use.

It took me three attempts to wet clean my M9 sensor completely. Lots of oily residue from the shutter, I think.
