Re: Is it possible to get custom prescription viewfinder lens correction?

I have -10D prescription lenses and use varifocal glasses with high refractive index glass. One of the reasons why I got a Sony A57 was because I could easily set the eyepoint back to make all the viewfinder and its info visible without moving the eye. Yet even with it fully magnified (and it's as big as it used to be in my old Olympus OM2 film camera) I can still see all I need to.

A prescription viewfinder lens would be an excellent idea, but with EVFs there is already a work-around.
