I also am slightly near sighted needing a -.5 diopter, just enough to 
give me a headache if I don't wear my glasses.  Anyway, I once called 
Nikon about the diopter for my old F3, back when I shot Nikon, and they 
told me that the normal finder was already a -1.  I do not know about any 
other cameras as the F3 was the only one I was inquiring about.  Maybe 
the different camera makers use a different setting for the "standard"
