Re: GH3 EVF smearing?

First, let me say that Ian is NOT a troll.

I handled a GH3 a few days ago and the very first thing that hapened was that I had a problem with the EVF. My first reaction was that someone had been playing around with the diopter wheel but after setting this to my own eye, I still found the EVF to be uncomfortable. Uncomfortable seems the best word to describe it.

The camera I tried was a Panasonic demo kit model...came with the new lenses, the microphone etc.  so perhaps was not a true production model: perhaps the problem has been solved for the model that will soon be on the shelves.

Apart from my discomfort with the EVF, I thought the GH3 was ergonomically superb and and My God! did those new lenses focus fast! Instantaneous might be a better word.

I should add that I have a patchy macular degeneration problem which may have exagerated my troubles with the EVF but Ian is right...there is somethinghere which is very different from the GH2 and G5 viewfinders.      JD
