0.61 vs 0.63 viewfinder

K50 (which I own) has 0.61 viewfinder whereas the K3 has 0.63

Is the difference 0.61 --> 0.63 noticeable at all? I know it wont be as drastic as when I looked through a friend's FF but just wondering.

I went from k-50 to k-3 and honestly I didn't notice the difference.

If I understand correctly, we are talking of a 2/100ths of an inch difference in diagonal measurement, no?
That's just a little (8/1000ths mm) over 1/2 a millimeter. That's about the thickness of my thumbnail.
Kudos to you if you notice that!

It's not really noticeable in practice, but if you put one camera to each eye, there's a small difference.

At the end of the day both cameras have really good viewfinders given that they're APS-C.
