Doesn't Zacuto's product require a base plate? And now with the LCDVF 3C (the 5D III model) accepting diopter lenses are there any real advantages to the Zacuto?

No, there is a stick on frame that they make. Its a little like the one the LCDVF uses except it holds much more securely as its not just attached with magnets. I use that method and like it very much. The Zacuto also has a way better build quality if the LCDVF 3C is built anything like the previous model. And the Zacuto has an industry standard eyecup so you can use nice micro fleece or micro fiber eyepiece pads. Not sure if they fit the LCDVF's eyecup. Also does the LCDVF have anti-fogging glass? Lastly the new LCDVF 3C has to be taken apart to slide in pre-defined diopter correction lenses, while the Z-Finder has a adjustable/variable diopter lens that can be controlled on the fly.

Yes, the eyecup on LCDVF is standard and accepts 3rd party pieces, in fact it comes with one included. For occasional video shooter ease of magnet attached viewfinder removal can be beneficial as allows quick switching from video to photo mode. To my knowledge Zacuto punted on adhesive frame for 5DIII and the only option available is this http://store.zacuto.co​m …for-Small-Body-DSLRS.html (external link) piece that requires Gorilla plate.

The whole package will run you $395 http://store.zacuto.co​m …2.5x-for-3.2-Screens.html (external link)

I want to deal with another base plate like I want another hole in the head, but if Zacuto allows for the magnet (like Andrew says, for a stills guy that dabbles in video, conveniently removing the eyecup seems liike such a nice compromise) I have no problem going with Zacuto. That goes double if LCDVF continues to flounder in vaporwareland.

Anti-fog is awesome but can't you accomplish the same thing with a little Rain-X or the like? But, yeah, it would be nice if the glass were resistance coated.

I can't find anything about street date for the LCDVF apart from the now outdated release announcement.

I have a question on using the Zacuto for the 5d MKIII.

I own the Z Finder 3x Pro and would like to use it with my 5dMKIII and am not sure about mounting the adhesive mounting frame on my camera. I use the Zacuto at work, and do not use it while I am carrying the camera on trips.

I have a Zagg lcd cover on my screen, would there be any negatived to mounting the adhesive frame onto it? Has anyone found the adhesive Zacuto mounting frame to be in the way?

I asked Zucto if they would custom make a gorilla plate with an Arc S mounting plate on the bottom but they told me they considered it but decided not to.

Thanks.

It's huge and blocking all controls around lcd, plus not really looking into another base plate.

BTW, LCDVF 3C compatible with 5DMKIII is already available.

It just landed at my house. :)
I ordered it from http://www.glidetrack.​com/lcdvf-3c.html (external link) just yesterday, after posting to this topic.
Cheapest I could find, shipped from UK. Imagine my surprise when Fedex called me yesterday evening scheduling signed delivery.
Crazy fast, less than a day since placing the order, not sure how they managed to do that.

Just installed it yesterday. I had GGS LCD screen protector installed and was afraid I would have to remove it in order to affix the mounting frame. To my surprise and relief the frame fit right around the protector. Extra bonus. :)
They also seem to start using softer rubber on the eye cup, before that extra foam cushion included in the package was almost a must, now I am not sure if I ever need it.
