HPX-500 Viewfinder

We are having a slight problem with our viewfinder. The image seems to distort slightly - the sides bow in just a tiny amount. It almost looks like barrel distortion on a lens, but this is even on telephoto. Straight vertical lines on the edge curve ever so slightly.

It seems like it's more evident on bright scenes that are driving the display more than dark ones, but that could just be an optical illusion.

I think I'll have to have it serviced, but wondered if anyone else has seen this problem. It's a very new camera.

Yea, sounds like something is failing in the VF. Have you tried checking the plug where it attaches to the camera?
