Re: First hand experience by glasses wearers of GV-3 viewfinder ?

Many hot shoe finders don't have soft surfaces around the eye opening, such as my Voigtlander 35mm finder which I use with my Bessa rangefinder. I've never found the plastic frame to scratch my glasses. I usually get polycarbonate lenses with AR coatings, they of course end up with small scratches eventually, but nothing that seems to me to have come from the viewfinder. I don't think there are sharp enough edges, and/or the plastic isn't hard enough. Granted this isn't an experience with the GV-3 in particular, but I suspect it would be somewhat similar. Mainly it's metal surfaces in viewfinders which chew up glasses.
