So you are saying there is essentially "lens correction" for the eye built into the viewfinder and is adjustable for different people's needs? Is this equally true for the built-in viewfinders on the 6&7 as well as the accessory you can buy for the 5n?


The diopter adjustment in the NEX-6 is +/- 3 diopters. My eyes have deteriorated pretty badly and I now need my multi-focal glasses for everything.

I can adjust the NEX-6 to see with my glasses, and if I take my glasses off, I can readjust the diopter setting to see even better without my glasses. I've considered getting those dorky flip-up frames and shooting without my glasses - the NEX-6 is that great.

It's vastly better than my D7000.
