Re: G11 Real-image optical zoom viewfinder Not!

Actually, a 100% zoom coupled and angle corrected OVF IS possible. What is not possible is to get the exact viewing angle of the lens (full parallax correction). That is only possible by viewing through the same lens as the picture is taken, such as a view camera or SLR or using an EVF.

Fully coupled OTFs are complicated, expensive and bulky, even without the range finding component.
