Finally got my camera and first thing I did is check for viewfinder "issue" that some people claim exists.

I immediately realized that there is zero issue. Image in viewfinder is perfect, no smearing at all. People who see smearing don't understand basic optics.

If you move your eye off the center you get double vision, not smearing, because the edge of the viewfinder window frame gets in the way of image in the viewfinder. Image in the viewfinder is focused in your eye but the edge of the viewfinder frame which is closer to your eye is not in focus.

So the image looks out of focus on the sides or in the corners.

How do those people take pictures?

I agree. There is not an issue. My GH3 does not show "the problem".

I see what the "issue" is but to me it's a non-issue.  Eye placement is a little more sensitive than it is with the GH2.  OMG.

The bigger issue to me is that it has lower apparent (though not actual) resolution, which makes it a little harder to MF.  Not a problem with magnified view, though, so not really a problem.
