    Will this diopter work on a GW690III

    Mine has been lost forever. Manual says it's a -1. Pretty good price for 3 at Amazon if it will fit. What do you think?

    Edit: Second thought... I don't see any threads...
    Edit 2, seems I don't know much about diopters or my eyesight. Since I need reading glasses I think I'll be in the +2 range.. nevermind

    I do know that Nikon diopters for the FM (and other models) fit the GW series of Fuji cameras. They are on ebay in various strengths all the time. I use about a +2.5 reading and the +2 Nikon worked for me. But no promises.

    I went to the drug store and tried various strength reading glasses in front of the Fuji eyepiece, by the way, to settle on the +2. You'll see it quite clearly.

    Is a x200 reading magnification the same as a +2 diopeter?

    Seems like on Olympus OM cameras there was about a .5 diopter native to the camera so the diopter you applied was less than yiu would normally need. Do you have any idea what physical size is the diopter?
