Hi all!

I wear glasses, and adjusted the diopter for naked eye viewing, and was thinking it would be cool that the camera took that into account for the live view viewing!...unless it does and I do not know about it!

For that to work, there would need to be at least one more piece of glass between you and the LCD.

This is an issue for farsighted, presbyopic or astigmatic folks; for nearsighted people there is no issue, as you can always get closer to the LCD to scrutinize the details!
