GV-1 & optical viewfinder question
Nov 16, 2007

It's my understanding that with the optical viewfinders you don't see any information from the camera. If so, then how do you know whether you're focusing on the part of the scene you want to focus on, and how do you know when the camera has locked focus? Do you listen for the beep? How does this work in close-up/macro mode?

I have the GX100 & electronic viewfinder, which simply shows everything I'd see on the LCD screen. But obviously that's not how it works with the GRD & GV-1.
