A waitress at the local pub makes me feel this way sometimes, but don't tell my wife!

At your age you'd think you'd know by now, that she knows, just like Lord Voldemort, she knows, she knows!

Forgot to say:

re oldies having MF problems: distance vision tends to get better as people age, so MF shouldn't be such an issue, unless you are short-sighted like me

EOSFUN - happy birthday! I am marrying a half-Dutch person on 9 Jan next year (she is not 22 alas!).

a.RodriguezPix - 9 dog years makes 56 in my book (9 x 7)

with that much enthusiasm I can quit fretting about being 37 and know that 47,57,67, and if God permits 77 will be just as if I were reborn! My father passed away at 56, my grandfather around the same, and a couple of my dad's brothers as well, so my mind was set to know 50's was going to be my "old" age! My wife, two children, and pet's however, are going to make me live above and beyond those that preceded me! My 16 year old daughter fought cancer, and is still doing so, but as soon as chemo is done, and the Doc gives her the okay, I will again be reborn, and defy my semi predetermined fate!

Well...I'm 75 and still making images every day.

My first photographic experience was at age 6 as I peered over the edge of the kitchen table and my Dad slipped a piece of white paper (Kodabromide) into a dish of water (Dektol). I was totally amazed as an image magically appeared.

I was hooked and still am....went from a Brownie box camera to Speed Graphic to currently a Canon 5D3 and everything in between.

Well, your eye has to focus on the focusing screen (not the scene) so the distance is quite close. The lens' job is to focus the scene on the focusing screen (and media, when the mirror moves, of course).

Granted, the dioptre certainly changes things, but the ability to focus the eye on a focusing screen really seems to have little to do with farsightedness or nearsightedness. For, if this was the case, manual focusing macro shots would be much easier for some than others, and vise versa.

I am near-sighted and I find it just as easy to manually focus distant subjects as I do macro... whether I am wearing my glasses or not (I prefer not to).

I'm 46, but have a new son who is 10 weeks old which makes me feel a lot younger at times and a lot older at times.

I plan to be this age for while. Ten months, at least.
