I agree, when the image is inverted the brain is immediately cued that things are not what they seem. When the image is merely reversed one must make a continuous effert to remember that the image is reversed. This reversal is particularly annoying when trying to track a subject moving from left to right and vice versa. One tends to first move the camera in the wrong direction. The problem goes away after a period of use but returns whenever there is a period of disuse.
