The X-Pro finder is tiny and dark, much like a D5000 or slightly worse. The OVF on the X100 is very nice, I wish it made its way to the XPro.

Wow. I had assumed that the X-Pro1 OVF was the same as the X-100, so I went & looked at a review. No mention of the size comparison, but I did learn that it is not a zooming OVF! The OVF in my Contax G1 changes magnification with the lens & I again assumed that the X-P1 did the same. Am I missreading that the only thing that changes with the lens is the framelines? I understand there are 2 levels of mag., but the OFV doesn't actually zoom to the field of view? The G1 OVF is small & dim, but looks to have been a functionally superior design.


I just think that things should work the way I expect them to.
