    I had the chance this morning to have both the Graphite version and the original black version of the X-PRO2 in my hand.
    I noticed that the viewfinder assembly in them was completely different!
    So, I put them both up to my eye.....The graphite version had a much wider field of view than the black version.
    Am I imagining this??
    Perhaps settings were different??
    Do they actually use a different viewfinder assembly??

    I was of the impression the 2 were identical apart from the coating.
    If you look at both Viewfinders from the front they are clearly different.

    Can others confirm?

    Cheers!

    I presume you checked them with the same lens mounted...the viewfinder does have two different magnifications.

    They were both switched off, would lens still make a difference?
    They did look totally different when viewed from the front.

    Yes. There are two magnifications available in the OVF, it changes either by the front lever or the lens mounted.

    Thanks! Clears that up then. No wonder the 2 looked so different!

    When I use XF16-55 zoom and OVF my XPro2 does not automatically change magnification... I have to do it manually : Is there a setting for that ?
