"Stuff from the Manual"


SE
          

On page III in the manual (Swedish). Freely translated to English:

* When using the viewfinder

If you turn the command dial while looking through the viewfinder, you must be careful not to stick your finger in your eye by mistake.


What?
Does anyone have that long thumbs?

You must have mistranslated.
They are talking about the Diopter adjustment directly beside the eyepiece not the command dial.

Nope, did not mistranslate. Diopter adjustment in Swedish i "diopterjustering". No mistranslation there. It's clear that they mean the command dial.

The English manual has a similar warning except relating to the diopter adjustment.

The English manual says,

"When operating the dipoter adjustment control with your eye to the viewfinder care should be taken not to put your finger in your eye accidentally."

Mayge the translation from English in the manual is incorrect.

I beleive only us swedes react to these kinds of legal disclaimers. in the land of "sue and get rich quickly" its just too common

"If you turn the command dial while looking through the viewfinder, you must be careful not to stick your finger in your eye by mistake."

Perfect translation really, it has nothing to do with the diopter adjuster, it specifically mentions the command dial.

Look through the viewfinder with your left eye and tell me where your right eye is Wouldn't take a long thumb for that
