X900/920 EVF Compared to TM700?

I'm looking to upgrade my aging TM700, but would like something with a better EVF. The TM700 EVF is barely usable for framing. For those who've already upgraded, have you found the X900/920 EVF an improvement?

Many Thanks,
Dan

Re: X900/920 EVF Compared to TM700

Found a bit of info on these EVFs:

TM700: 123K
X920: 263K

Technically, the X920 should be an improvement.

Re: X900/920 EVF Compared to TM700

Hi Dan, I just bought the X-920 and I have the TM700 there is a difference, the best way I can describe it is like this, the TM700 EVF is like going closer to your T.V. screen until you see the pixels that start making up the pictures, so you can see the dots (like news print) you can verify that by looking through your EVF, the X-920 you don't see the pixels it's smoother and sharper looking.
