That wasn't condescending. I really meant that I believe you and will give you the benefit of the doubt. I changed the wording to make it clearer where I could and I truly believe it is simply a variation in manufacturing.

Sorry , I misinterpreted the tone of your post

However, I still have the question how good is one that doesn't have the issue. I would love to see an image or video taken exactly how we have taken them to see what is good. I can tell you that the videos I have posted are completely representative of how it looks in my viewfinder when I use my eye.

And the issue does bother me enough to have it repaired or replaced. I just can't return it right now. I have a competition I have to shoot next week and I cannot do it without the GH3. I will shoot that comp and then send it in for repairs.

I just hope to get the word out there so everyone knows what they are looking for. If they don't see the issue then great they now know that they have a good camera and can rest at ease knowing they won't have to return it.

For those that see the same issue then they will immediately know that it could be better if they return it and get a different one. I don't see how demonstrating this is a bad thing?

Do you think this is a figment of our imagination?

Not at all, I have stated in every post that I believe that quite a few folk are clearly having issues with their camera; quite the contrary ,you are the one who seems to have a problem accepting those of us who don't have an issue :-). I use the EVF a lot of the time and it would be a major problem for me to the extent that I would not buy the camera at all if I was having the same issues. I am not convinced that using any camera/lens combination to display the view through the EVF will give an accurate facsimile of the view through a human eye.

Do you think it possible that those of us without a problem are by some fluke just centring our eyes, in a way that makes the viewfinder view clear?  The consequence if this was the case would mean that all GH3’s will always be faulty to those who do not use the EVF in the exact same way as those of us who do. A problem in some places is the lack of supply of GH3’s making it difficult to compare EVF’s directly, I have two GH3 bodies bought from different retailers a week apart [UK} and both perform exactly the same.
