I see your point. Same problem here. If I'm out with a camera just for fun, occasional photos, I have no big problems with my glasses. But if I plan a photo session, I use contact lenses (and need reading glasses to decrypt a menu card
). It is a better feeling for frequent viewfinder use than with glasses.
What I also tried - already mentioned somewhere in this forum - is inserting only ONE contact lens, for the photographing eye. And keeping near sight capability with the other. After half an hour my sight is accommodated and I feel no problems.
I tried it but still dislike photographing on regular base with arms extended using the back display.
