Re: Not an optical viewfinder in X20?

I have an x20. The optical view finder does not produce an image thru the lens. It operates like 35mm film cameras. However it is coupled to the zoom. Your view will sync with changes in zoom same as the electronic view finder on the back of the camera. There is an electronic overlay that shows shooting data in the optical view finder when the camera is turned on- shutter speed, f-stop, and mode. Also OK focus indicator that turns green when subject is in focus. You will not see brightness changes when shutter or f-stop is changed. I really like the view finder. It really helps when the sun washes out the electronic view finder.
