You should continue doing what's right for you. But the diopter correction does nothing for the actual focusing of the images other than making sure the viewfinder is calibrated to your eye. Are you guys using, i.e., do you have focusing screens, in your dSLRs? Cuz, I don't know about any of you but, diopter calibrated to my eye or not, I don't trust my own eye to focus without a focusing screen.
