I use 'em on all my bodies and yes I wear glasses, IMHO any disadvantages they give, are more than made up by the advantages they bring.
Good to know kerrowdown. I take it by "'em" you're referring to OME53's? By the way I'm jealous of your location tag.

I wear progressive glasses and leave 'em on when I shoot. I have the OME53 on the K20D I've typically used with long lenses. I think it helps a bit--but not as much as remembering to clean my glasses ;~) I'd be interested in reports on that TENPA 1.22x.

Oh, look what I found.

Nice find! Glad I hadn't ordered one yet.

I decided that the OME53 is still likely the best magnifier for those adorned with spectacles. On the flip side, I finally got around to ordering a nicer focusing screen (the Ec-A type from focusingscreen.com). I'm hoping it'll help enough that I won't need the magnifier.

I'll report back when I get the FS in and tested.

Are people using the TENPA with or without their specs? I take mine off. I'm left eyed, and unfortunately its my left eye which is the worst of the two, I am also of an age where one tends toward long sight (I've been nearsighted since 16-18) and my right eye is becoming more longsighted than the left. I feel lopsided. Additionally, I have diabetes which is unstable (self induced) and that affects the near and long sight as well...

Lately I have been finding that I don't see as well through the viewfinder without specs as I used to. Will adding a TENPA (or similar) help this issue, do you think?
