its funny cause no one will openly admit yet but Panasonic did change companies for the viewfinder so there are the GH3's out there with the new viewfinder that most have not gotten yet. *cough* CES

How was this confirmed? For what I've read, its just been speculation, like most of these kinds of rumors.

Even if they did switch suppliers, it doesn't necessarily mean a different or improved version of the EVF. It could just be a supplier change based on logistics or cost. I would imagine that Panasonic provides the specs and the suppliers just build to those specs.

I suppose we won't know for certain until it can be determined by comparisons if we see a major change in the EVF characteristics on newer cameras.

I'll put it to you this way I sent in my camera. If it comes back the same I'm calling the guy from CES which I have his card (manager) which had the replaced FIXED viewfinder. My friend went to CES knows exactly how my EVF functions took a look at the ones displayed made a pretty loud argument over the EVFs at the panasonic table and none of the workers could fix the evf until a manager came over and DESCRETLY talked to him and showed him his GH3 that had the EVF fixed and quietly told him about the change in the manufacture. Now whether you choose to believe me is entirely up to you. I know the facts I trust my friend whose an avid photographer and I sent in my GH3. You honestly think a company is willing to admit they messed up at the cost of alot of money for them. Not all the EVFs were affected but a good amount of the first batch like mine were. So again I irrtierate you can choose to believe this story or not but I not longer have my GH3. It's to be fixed
