S100fs owners: Viewfinder question, please -
Dec 30, 2008

My new S100fs seems to take excellent pictures, after some twiddling with EV, flash output, etc. But the viewfinder is killin' me!

I have 20-20 vision with my contact lenses in, and I find the best diopter correction on the VF is dead center (which makes sense). But it is still fuzzy - out of focus by enough to make it a little hard to verify good focus other than by trusting the little green indicator. By comparison, I can pick up my Panasonic FZ30 or FZ50 and it's crystal clear.

So my question to owners is - is this what you're experiencing, too? Or is my camera perhaps defective? I have only a week to return it if it's bad, so I would appreciate any feedback you might have ... especially if you've used other cameras with better VF's.

Paul TIll? ... Lloydy? ... Dumb Blonde? ... Anyone else?
