Lazy ignorant designers. If it works well for them it must work for everyone else right? They either ignorant to know about how common and significant left eye dominance is. Or they know and don't care.

Apparently one third of all people are left eye dominant so I actually see only catering for right eyed people as prejudiced.

I guess having the viewfinder in the middle is inconvenient for everyone.

Considering what's at stake, I'd be surprised if all camera designers were lazy & ignorant & that the camera companies don't spend a fair amount of time & money on market research, rather than relying on an apparent statistic.

Everything to do with photography is a guideline. The only rules are generally enforced by the police.
