    Right. Though I should use my left since it's my dominant eye, but I just can't bring myself to shoot with the left. That's also why I won't use a camera with the viewfinder located at the side, e.g. the Sony NEX-7.

    Left eye. Just can't use a VF with my right eye.

    My eyes just aren't close enough together to use both. :wink: :tongue:

    *** Important scientific research ***

    Does anyone else want to chime in?
    Supposedly, two thirds of the population in general are right eye dominant.

    Ocular dominance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    We need a some more votes here to see if MFT photographers are a special breed indeed as so far we got two thirds for the left eye...

    Right.

    (Unless my shooting position is awkward such that the left eye is easier.)
