Hi. I own a G1X Mark III and I wear glasses. No issues whatsoever. I was actually over satisfied by the quality of the evf. For some reason I was expecting less. But it’s comfortable and clear.

Great to hear that!

I am afraid I won’t be of much help with the other questions. I rarely use manual focus, and when I do I switch completely to that then back to autofocus. Focus peaking is precise.

That is a helpful, thanks for that info.

As a compact camera, the only model I’ve tried was the Lumix LX100 II. I enjoyed using it but it had build issues. Sold it and got the G1X Mark III. Can’t go wrong with the very good APS-C sensor, the lens is sharp and with 24mpx you do have a lot of resolution to play with and crop. It is preferable to have a lens hood for peace of mind. Got a good quality third party one at a cheap price.

I forgot to ask about a lens hood.   I usually use my hand for sun glare, but forgot to ask about a more "permanent" solution.   Thanks for that too.

Hope this helps.

It sure did!
