    Is having a colour viewfinder really worth paying the extra for? I have heard it makes manual focusing a bit more difficult in some situations. I suppose it depends on the viewfinder resolution.

    In general a BW viewfinder is preferable. Higher resolution therefore easier focus and a better representation of what you are actually recording (Apart from colour balance of course)

    It is no accident most 'pro' cameras still have B/W viewfinders.

    I found my Sony TRV 120 b/w viewfinder difficult to pick out the subjects I was focusing on.

    I've now got a Panasonic GX7 with colour viewfinder,which is of a higher quality and brightness than I was expecting.
