OK if your vision is near perfect
on 30 December 2011
I can't argue that it doesn't do the job (see the first review) but if you wear glasses you may well find that you cannot get clear focus on the LCD screen. With the naked eye or my distance prescription it is quite blurred. It is pretty good with my reading prescription but who walks around wearing reading glasses? Anyway as I have bifocals I can't see the LCD properly through the lower part of my spectacles and its physically uncomfortable trying! I trawled through the glasses in my local pharmacies and found I need a lens of about +3 immediately behind the moulded in lens which gives an extremly sharp image of the LCD pixels leaving me free to judge the actual camera focus. Unfortunately I cannot find a source of a 50mm diameter +3 lens which wouldn't be difficult to mount onto the rear of the moulded in lens with a thin mounting ring which would be easy to make and presumably a lot cheaper than a diopter LCD viewer.
