Great observation.  Write Olympus about that!  Makes one wonder about design
engineers.  I know that for speed, 35 mm cameras are designed for right-eye
shooting.  But non-engineers know that in the real world people have imperfect
eyesight and might want to use the left eye.  I (eye) for one.  No wonder the
OM1 through 4 feels right to me.
