Re: I don't understand about the glasses; why do you have to wear them?

I don't know why manufacturers don't take glasses wearers more into account when designing viewfinders. It's not like we are a small number of people, yet 90% of viewfinders I find are compromised in some way (sometimes small ways) for glasses wearers. Even if the stock cushion was larger but you could buy a smaller one for use with glasses I wiuld be happy.

In the old days, manufacturers used to offer custom lenses for the viewfinders of their Pro cameras that you could have ground to match your eyeglass prescription. (Maybe they still do, I haven't bought a true pro-level camera in a long time.)  But I recall that for my Canon F1N this option was available, but not cheap.

Maybe they feel it's less important today, since so many people where contacts.
