I feel your pain although in my case I can't see well out of my left eye it's very hazy all the time. Before this happened I was using a D300 and had trained myself to start using the right eye instead so my nose wouldn't rub the LCD. Who knew this was going to happen.

But good point. If you are a left eye shooter the EVF on the left side of the body is not ideal. I just picked up my GX7 and tried it. If was a left eye shooter I would of bought the E-M10 or E-M1. And I was considering both these bodies but the GX7 spoke to me the loudest. The Panasonic bodies, GH4, GH3, G6 & GX7 fit my hand like a tailor glove.
