Re: Sounds like a small exit pupil - never any trouble with old models.

Long eye relief and a large exit pupil are apparently too much to ask for in a modern camera. That's probably because the eyepiece would be comparatively large, and because most consumers have either forgotten what a good viewfinder is, or because they never looked through one in the first place anyway.

However that may be, tried my G1 and G2, and, as long as you can see the whole image presented by the viewfinder, you get no smearing, no distorsion, nothing. Never any trouble aligning the eye or whatever...

Shows, the G1 and 2 have easier to use EVFs... .

EXACTLY !!

What gives with the GH3 VF on at least some GH3s to make it like this?! My G1, GH1, G5 and other EVF cams give me zero problems, so why my GH3?
