Trus, one of the things I've done is to get it away from the 9 point auto-focus. I use auto-spot focus most of the time. I'll focus on the spot I want to be in focus, half press the shutter button to lock it in and the re-frame the shot. I found that it works pretty well. Hope that helps.

I wear glasses too and perhaps it's more difficult for us to focusing well (I'm not sure of this). I hope this little problem disappear taking a lot of pictures. Thanks for reply..
I also wear glasses and developed this solution.

I remove my glasses and set the camera EVF's focus to match my old eyes.

I bought one of those eyeglass strings that have rubber ends the go around the stems.

I used the ends, removed the string, replaced it with a black elastic cord 1 mm diameter, and shortened the overall length. So when I toss them, yes when I toss them for a quick picture they wind up high on my chest and out of the way. I took an old 35mm canister and keep the lanyard in there when not used. I do not care what it looks like; when I am taking pictures, it is strictly business.


Hope this helps.

LoveLife, could you elaborate a bit? It sounds to me like you've figured out a way to deal with glasses without them getting in the way of the camera, but I'm not sure I understand. I need to do something, I almost lost my prescription sunglasses in the botanical gardens last weekend. I stuck them on top of my head, and they fell off. Good thing I found them!
