    I always get annoyed about the lack of an adjustable diopter. Standard with S-8 cameras.
    But to be fair there was no SLR with such when the T-90 was introduced.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    The ordinary T90 rubber eyecup has no correction glass in it the +1 is in the cameras optical system, the original rubber eyecups are very rare and expensive on ebay a current made replacement made by Canon that fits and works is the eyecup.. EB

    Get an optometrist to examine your eyes then make a corrective eyepiece for you that can be fashioned into the eyecup. The T90 was never particularly stellar at catering for people who wear glasses, so it's a case of innovate and experiment (but don't disassemble the native eyeglass on the camera body!).

    I forget which EOS eyecup actually works on the T90 (Ben's probably right); they'll all slide on, they just have a different profile and some will interfere with the film back.

    There is no glass in the T90 eyecup. And if you want to add a diopter to your T90, use the EOS diopters; they fit just fine.

    It occurs to me though that the eyecups for the 7N series are physically larger than the others and aren't really usable on the T90. May be same with the diopters, though I never used one on my 7NE.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Ben is right, I have a Canon EB eye cup on my aT90 at the moment and it fits perfectly..

    Well it's not for everyone.......but as millions of people have similar eye sight esp with problems getting older, you could go to a boot sale and pick up a pair of spectacles for 50p and use that

    I wear glasses with varifocal lenses and have no problem with them using the EB eyecup with my T90, I can't use a correction lens because I have astigmatism.
