Re: Lower EVF mag. much better for eye-glass wearers.

Since I have astigmatism and also use varifocals, I'm guessing a simple dioptre adjustment would be less sophisticated than my glasses, but equally I can see his point.

Is there any standard guidance or recommendations?

(I find my glasses important to see stuff before I even get my camera to my eye as well of course).
It has nothing to do with lens type/ strength etc, its just the fact that the lens is there at all. It prevents ones eye from getting close enough to the EVF.
