The OVF in the X-Pro is identical to the OVF in the X100 except it isn't as bright because it has a more complex job to do with multiple focal lengths and a couple levels of magnification. I don't find it tiny or dark, but the X100's is larger and brighter.snip

I guess maybe statements like that above contributed to my confusion about the X-Pro1 viewfinder. "The OVF in the X-Pro1 is identical to OVF in the X100 except it isn't as bright", "but the x100s is larger & brighter."

Clear as mud!,

It is functionally identical, but the X100's is slightly larger and brighter because, having a simpler job by virtue of only having to accommodate a single fixed lens, there is less glass for the light to pass through. When you look through them back to back, they are slightly different visually, but they're functionally identical in terms of how you use them and the information they convey.

Capice?
