Eye-point on pentax's viewfinder

Hello everyone, here's the my first post on this forum, hope can get help form all of you guys.

I am trying to perswade one of my friend to choose K-x.
But when we comparing the technical data of elimentary bodys on the market.

We found that both Nikon and Canon would showing the eye-point info of their cameras.
But I can't find such data for my K-x.

This is important cause he needs to wear the glasses.
Does anyone can give us some iedas?

Thanks..

I think what you are talking about is diopter adjustment, k-x does that.

Some of my friends said it is quite important for someone who wearing glasses to see through the viewfinder.

I suspect typical canon/Nikon gobbledygook, I wear glasses and in fact with out them the whole world is a blur near or far, as a result i wear varifocals.
With them off if I adjust the dioptre slide to the full left the eye piece is sharp but then I can't see the screen view.
With my glasses on the dioptre needs to be set in the middle as the glasses have corrected my vision.
With my glasses on and pressed up to the rubber eye cup I can see the full viewfinder from side to side, this is with a K10d and a couple of older pentax and panasonic bridge cameras.
tell you friend not to worry.

Thank you Alistair.

Unfortunately, he's going to buy a Sony NEX-5.

I can't say more due to the huge differents between them.
