    Default 24mm vs 22mm Panoptic - Same eye relief



    According to Tele Vue, the 24mm and 22mm Panoptics have the same eye relief.
    Is this true in practice (with the eyeguards and everything in place)? Is
    the 24mm comfortably usable with glasses? The 22mm is not (at least for
    me).

    I found the same. How much eye relief people who use eyeglasses need
    varies a fair amount. With the 22mm, I had to squish my eyeglasses into
    the eyepiece to see the whole fov. In contrast, a 21mm Pentax (and the
    14mm) have just the right amount of er; the most comfortable eyepieces
    I've used.

    I, too, would be interested in hearing about the eye relief of the 24mm,
    especially compared to the 22mm or the Pentaxes.
