Resurrecting an old thread here but...
I too wear spectacles and have trouble using the viewfinder on my XA. After focussing, I sometimes need to perch my specs precariously on the top of my head while composing the shot.
Just got some rolls back from the lab, and I noticed that many of the shots seem to have a lot of space on the lefthand side. I recall composing on the assumption that the area obscured in the viewfinder by the shutter speed display wouldn't be in the shot. But I'm now thinking that perhaps I was wrong and I need to compose accordingly.
Does anyone with an XA have a view on this?!
