That's my expreience too - I returned my first UK batch GH3 for a later January 2013 batch model (again, in the UK) and the EVFs are the same - lacking in crispness, smeary, and you have to look dead centre for things to look OK. I honestly can hardly use it for manual focus at all. It is a world apart from the amazing EVF on my Sony a77.

I had a look at the NEX-7 again while I was there today.  No doubt it looks better than the GH3 EVF.  I noticed it does have some distortion, but not to the same degree as the GH3, nor is it as sensitive to eye placement.  Plus, I was able to see the entire image corner to corner with my glasses on, something I wish I could do with my GH3.

I also noticed the Sony's EVF image turns to a brownish tint when you move your eye a bit off center.

This whole EVF thing has me baffled.  Some people see nothing wrong at all while others think it is terrible.
