Well it was only a matter of time before my eyes would let me down. I just ordered my first pair of reading glasses. I just could not read the menu on the 20d or the manual. So my question is this. Is it a pain to shoot with glasses on ? Should I buy a pair just for shooting ? It seems holding the camera up to shoot will scratch the lens in the glasses in time right ?

According to the specs listed on the Canon USA site, the 20d has a -3.0 to +1.0 diopter corrections available at the viewfinder. Have you tried that part of your camera to see whether it will correct enough for you?

I wear glasses and I've never found it to be a problem, either seeing through the viewfinder of a camera or with having scratches caused by the camera. Also, a lot of cameras have, either standard or as an accessory, a rubber extender specifically for people who wear glasses so that there's no metal-to-glass contact.

Wearing glasses and shooting a camera is not a propblem for me, bust one of the above poster pointed out you may have to adjust the diopter to adjust to your glasses magnification factor. I'm having more problems with binoculars when I'm hunting and only recently I fould a Korean made that have a rubber rings around the eyepieces to press the glasses against instead of bumbing into the hard surface. Camera makers were ahead of the game and most have that rubber ring around the view finder to give little cushion for eyeglasses. If your glasses are strictly for reading you may have trouble keeping things in focus at a greater distance. My ophthamologist prescribed progressive bifocals for me to be able to read at close range and still see things in focus at a distance. Have no fear things will work out for you just fine.
