My GH3 EVF - a new observation and opinion

To clarify, my issue is that I can see the distortion with my eye perfectly centered and against the EVF eye cup. I'm not looking at it from a distance.

It's true that taking a shot of the EVF image with another camera can make it look good or bad. But regardless of how the picture was taken, the resulting image accurately represents the distortion the I (and perhaps others) are seeing. It's just a way of showing others the effect we're seeing.

So, with my eye centered and against the eye cup, I see distortion in the onscreen information. Particularly the area where the aperture and ISO readings appear. The slightest movement of my eye causes the distortion to bounce between the two.  It's as if the focused area of the magnifier is simply too small.

This is the same for the other 6 or so GH3s that I've looked at in person.

Again, this is just my own observations and I would sincerely like to see a GH3 in person that does not have this distortion effect.
