I've looked through pretty much all the R's and Flexes and I wear glasses and 
they all look about the same to me.  Not quite as much relief as the Nikon 
HP's but plenty adequate for me, plus the maginification is greater.  I agree 
about the FM2n.  My F, F2 and Nikkormat have better eye relief than the FM2n. 
 So does my latest aquisition, an FM10.
