need a comment, should the quality of the evf viewed inside be close to the quality when viewed outside. mine is very different and the quality is much lower. in the wide angle it is almost impossible to view the subject, when you zoom closer it is better. please advise, thanks.:idea:

If I understand the question you are having a hard time seeing through the EVF out of doors but not indoors. It should be the same. Try going to menu - Setup - Monitor and see what the setting is. Maybe you need to increase the brightness. If you see fine inside but not able to outside my advice would be to have it checked out.

Do you wear glasses or are you in manual mode?

In the FZ10, if you go to menu / setup / monitor you change the brightness of the LCD, and you can only do this if you are using the LCD while doing it. However, if you use the EVF, the option you have is menu / setup / finder where you change the EVF's brightness. Each one of the viewers is changed individually. If your... FZ20? has these same features, check each one of them.

Also have you used to Dioptric adjustment?? This might also cause the image of the EVF to look bad. You might need to adjust it due to you having glases. It it the little rotating dial next to the EVF. Try that as well.
