There isn't a VF in the 35mm format that enables me to focus critically due to my particular eyesight. I'd say Live View did more for me in terms of focusing.

Curious if you'd want to elaborate on that any.  I am visually impaired - about 20/100 corrected.  Not sure if that's roughly your condition or not?

As for my own condition and my new 5D3, I'm able to get a good general idea of focus with the VF, but for my MF lenses (Zeiss 50 Makro f/2 and TS-E 24) I rely heavily on the focus confirmation beep while twisting the ring.  I then check the photo after the shoot, or use live view if I have a tripod.

In any case I'm curious if there are other low vision photographers out there.  One co-worker retorted "wow you sure take good pictures for being blind!" Heh.

If it's a *Single* Lens Reflex, why do I need so many lenses?
