Re: Got my GH3 today

In the respects you mention, the GH3 is much, much better. It's the optics between the eye and the screen that are the problem. I suspect the issue is caused by Panasonic's decision to put a 16:9 screen in there. In order to make that viewable in essentially the same size package as the GH2's viewfinder, they needed to use wide-angle lenses, which is where the distortion comes from.

I think you're exactly right Bob.  The G6 EVF is much easier to look at with regards to optics, but I don't think it has the 16:9 ratio of the GH3.
