    i guess it depends which eye is ur master eye.. For me it's the same eye which I use when firing a rifle... U go and try lor.. if you use ur non-master eye, sometimes you might not even be able to find the viewfinder... (which is quite funny, let me know if some of you experience this also)...

    I guess you can tell which eye is ur master eye by simply pretending to do a shooting action with your hand and see which eye u use to aim and shoot.. that's the one lor..

    so if everyone use left eye, you'll use left eye? so if everyone use 400mm f/2.8 to shoot, you also will buy one to shoot?

    wierd wierd wierd.

    it's not important which eye if any u use to view before clicking what is important is use your eyes to view the results. following what other's do is couter productive if it goes against the way which works best for you. go try different ways and see which one(s) work best 4 u.
