GX80 EVF quality - Dependent on individual models?

In addition to my FF and MFT camera's, I have been looking for a small MFT camera with an EVF for quite some time.

Given its size and price, the GX80 seemed to be the obvious choice. However, I doubted whether I should buy it, because the EVF was presumably so poor (color tearing).

I tried it in a shop, and indeed the EVF was absolutely horrible.

However, since I needed a small MFT camera anyway, a couple of months later I decided to order one on-line anyway.

Guess what, the EVF of the camera I received is quite good, much better than I remember from the shop, and I cannot replicate the color tearing. Perhaps it is a QA issue and differs per individual model?
