Some say the high mag position of the classic Canon Tri-finder corresponds as a finder for the 100mm lens.. others say it corresponds to the 135mm lens, I don't know as I always used a separate VF on the camera with lenses longer than 50mm.
The Viewfinder on the VT has aged better than the Viewfinder on the VIT on most cameras, as internal light reflections in the latter's viewfinder can be annoying.
So the viewfinder mag just changed to represent a field of view? I believe that I read elsewhere that the VT has parallax corrected frame lines.
