I am considering the RX100 (among others) for the haveitwithyou advantage, but;

I use reading glasses (off-the-shelf 1.5-2.0) for my nearfield vision focus, and am concerened this would make use of rear LCD near impossible. These are separate glasses carried in my pocket, not bifocals.

Are there any users like me who DO use the RX100 succesfully?
Thanks in advance for replies.

I can use it without reading glasses - I use +2.00 for reading - but reading glasses (or multifocal contact lenses!) makes using the LCD a better experience. I always prefer EVF/Optical VF to LCD - so I knew going in this would be a bit of an issue with the RX100 - but it is clearly not a deal breaker. I keep a cheap pair of +1.50s on a croakies strap for any extended RX100 outing.
