OVF too innacurate

The OVF was a huge selling point when I bought my XPro1....if it hadn't had one I doubt I would have bought the camera. Then a funny thing...the framelines in the OVF (especially 2 yrs ago) were HUGELY inaccurate. I pride myself in my compositions and I literally never crop in post...get it tight at the moment of shooting and maximize the MP available has always been my motto. Out of necessity I started using the EVF and to be honest it gradually grew on me when I initially hated it....because at least the composition is 100% accurate.

The recent FW update improved the OVF accuracy greatly, but only on certain lenses! My 35mm as an example is now quite accurate using the OVF, but my 23mm is way too innacurate to trust the framelines. Really disappointing as I don't understand why they don't fix this.
