There seems to be quite a few cameras recently - Sony NEX 7, Fuji X-E1 that have their viewfinders on the left, which is great for right-eye shooters.

However, there are lots of people who are left-eye shooters, why are there no cameras with the viewfinder on the right?

Is it due to the shutter button traditionally having been in the right corner?

With this one:

Minolta angle-viewfinder

you get the same chance, no matter if you're a "left-eye shooter" or not

Available from Seagull, I guess.
