Thank you DPR for reporting honestly about your GH3 EVF !!

Well, well, well !

"However, we found the viewfinder optics to be disappointing - it's difficult to ever see the whole panel and the corners are fuzzy unless you look straight at them (a problem that gets even worse if you wear glasses). We also found a distinct color cast to the EVF panel, meaning it gave a different (and apparently less accurate) color rendition to the rear screen. No amount of tweaking the fine tune settings in the menu could get the EVF to render greens the way they appear in the final output."

Plus in the other thread Richard Butler confirms that he DID get other people in the DPR office to look through the EVF and he confirms they DID see the problem, so it is NOT just an issue with Richard Butler's eyesight, as someone claimed on the GH3 review thread.

So, after I and others got lambasted for moaning about the EVF on our GH3s, were told that we needed to see an optician, or that we don't know how to adjust diopter correction, lo and behold this is what DPR report. It's nice to be vindicated but sad that when anyone posts anything negative about their experiences on these forums they are the target of offensive abuse. Maybe, just maybe, someone might have a valid point huh? None of us ever said all GH3 EVFs are awful or flawed, all we ever said was that we had an issue with our GH3s. And now DPR reports the same thing.

Anyone want to start claiming that DPR staff need an optician's visit or don't know how to use an EVF? No? Thought not !
