Eh, if i view my camera, i set the diopter towards minus (-) then its short sighted or long sighted?

now abit blur when viewing the max of minus, should i get a -1 or +1 diopter attachment?

-minus should be short sighted for optometry terms. If the diopter scale adopts the same reading scale then -1 means short sighted '100 degrees'

If the lens turn dark, may not get a correct exposure feeling when look at the camera lcd for viewing, have to rely on histogram. Viewing through VF usually is not a problem, but somehow it's a bit darker than usual, manual focus become a pain though.

optician said that its optional to have glasses, but i might be reliance on it, since i dun wear glasses now.

Not very sure, but they didn't ask what colour to choose from. Their are other cheaper generic brand with different colour tinge though.

Not sure got yellow tint or not, probably you have to call/visit the shop to ask.
