I don't get -understand- this aging eyesight bit. Due to age I use 2.0 (+) glasses to read. That means I can see both the waistlevel finder and the controls (also meaning values indicated) with my glasses on. With an 35 mm rangefinder I use the viewer without glasses but won't be able to make out the counter or whatever value indicated on the outside of the camera or lens. So in fact I find the TLR more comfortable to use, no need to put glasses on and off, I simply keep them on to look at the camera and look over the top of them at whatever scene I'm interested in.
By the way, separate issue adressed to the rest of you, reverse image has never been a problem for me. I think it's because I tend to look at the viewer as if it were a photograph, more or less unrelated from the reality in front of me. With a normal viewer that's harder to do. I guess people with digital screens should get the the same slightly disconnected feeling, but not having tried it that's just a guess. Anyone recognize this?
