Re: Does it work with aged eyes ? I need some distance to see the LCD

I def. have aged eyes LOL. I do wear glasses and def. have to have reading glasses to see an LCD. I find with a diopter tweak that I can use the EVF just fine. It IS different from a DSLR OVF--but depending upon your DSLR it can be better or probably as good most of the time. I prefer my G1 EVF to my 5D OVF--esp. for manual focusing which I do quite a bit. It took me a few days to adjust--esp. for very low light but now--I can manual focus in very low light where I could never do that with an OVF. I love the MF assist BTW--where it magnifies to 7x and 10x for focusing manually or AF tweaks.
