Viewfinder

What is the size of the viewfinder screen? I can't find the spec anywhere.

0.44 inch I believe. quite tiny, but it 'seems' sharper than the XL1/XL2 viewfinders. The XL2-evf is a lot bigger (although about the same resolution), but you have a seriously visible raster, that I always thought to be irritatingly distracting....

Totally agreed. The viewfinder on the XL2 & XL H1 is very "bitty", showing every individual pixel. The HD100's viewfinder shows a more CRT-like image.

Ditto the comparison with the Xl1s. Terrible viewfinder compared to the JVC one which is usable.

How does it compare to the VF on Z1U? (I am not familiar with the XL1/2 line).
