    Hi all, first post here,
    I'm wondering about the image magnification in the X10 & X20 viewfinder. Would someone with an X10 estimate what equivalent focal length gives a life-size view? Fuji's spec of a 20 degree horizontal apparent view translates to about 100mm from the site below. But allowing for 85% of the image being shown puts the life-size estimate just longer than 85mm. Either one would be a great increase from the Canon G10 I've been using. My old Contax G2 was near life-size with the 90mm lens and that was quite usable.
