Definitely left-eyed here. I recently bought a 2nd hand Ricoh and the advance lever has two positions for focussing which is much better. Maybe the big dent in my forehead will start to fill in now.
P.S. I just read this quote from the post above.
""Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst" ... Henri Cartier-Bresson"
What a relief. I was beginning to give up hope of ever taking a reasonable photo. Probably only a few hundred more to go. Sigh!
