Subject: RE: [Leica] Which Leica M6 should I buy?

this reminds me of my first day working with a new cameraman.
I noticed shortly after we'd started that his right lens from his glasses 
was removed facilitating easy use of his eye to the viewfinder where he 
could dial in his own dioptre adjustment.
Later that afternoon, he shared his concern with me that he suspected the 
back focus had gone on the zoom lens he was using as nothing seemed to be 
really sharp.
I asked him if he always used that trick with his glasses and he asked what 
that was. I mentioned the missing lens at which point the whole problem 
came sharply into focus for him.
Embarrassment, large scale...

I have always thought that having to use glasses with a camera must be very
frustrating. You can get correction lenses for the
eyepiece but then you are blind until you can get your glasses back on.
