Zacuto Z-Finder Strobing Effect

I recently purchased the Zacuto Z-Finder PRO 3x for my T2i; I really like everything about it except this strobing effect I'm getting while panning or tilting. If I pan really slow it seems to minimize the effect, but normal pans and quicker movements seem to cause a shutter / strobe like effect that is VERY noticeable in the eyepiece (not the footage).

I do understand that the LCD on the T2i has a slight strobe (very minimal) to it and being that the Z-Finder magnifies the LCD could be why this is happening, but It's a bit annoying and I could see this causing problems if I am trying to pull focus on a moving object.

Any thoughts?

I will try to somehow film inside the eyepiece and post what it's doing.
