Now that the GH3 is coming down in price to sub-$1000 mark, I am considering one.

The one hesitation I have is around the EVF on this model. I hear that it is not that great and that there appears to be some "curvature" when looking through it. I will try and find a sample to test at a dealer shortly but I would like to know how the GH3's EVF would compare to the GH2's?

I find the EVF of the GH2 quite good for what it is. Is the GH3's any better?

I am okay for the rest of the GH3's spec so I have no need to splash extra cash on a new release GH4 - I prefer to buy when a model is heading towards EOL. Thanks for any input.

I have read about this problem and I have heard people complain about it, but in the year I have owned my GH3 I never ever experienced it - with or without glasses, and I use mine everyday.  Great the new GH4 has a much larger and even sharper EVF (maybe one of the best out there), but I have zero problems with the current model.  It is quite simply a great great camera for both stills and video - either one or both.
