A Tale of Two Diopters

As a varifocal (transitions) spectacle wearer, I had to order a Fuji -3 diopter for my X-Pro 1, which is great for using it without my specs on. However, I now can't decide which is easier; with the original diopter, and specs on, or with the -3 diopter, specs off. Decisions!

What's more confusing is that the X100 I owned, briefly, had a variable diopter. However, the -3 setting I required to use it without my specs on was not available, so I had to wear my specs when using it. I find this odd, that Fuji provides a diopter range for the X-Pro 1 that it does not make available to the X100 user. The reason Ingot rid of the X100, albeit reluctantly, was due to this issue, as I like the flexibility. I note that the X100s diopter has the same range as its predecessor.

Just wondered how others view (!) the issue.
