    I shoot with either prescription glasses or sunglasses so my thinking is my dioptric adjustment should be neutral. Any ideas on how best to calibrate this feature :confused: ?

    oh, that's easy.

    Look through it at a white paper or something...with enough light to see your focus points.

    Adjust it until you see the focus points are sharp.

    You can change it quickly for when you need it with different glasses. it's quite easy to set it off the blue sky or something as well.

    It's to make sure the eyepeice patches your vision/prescription...so as long as the points are sharp, you'll be good.

    Yes by all logic if you shoot with your glasses on then the dioptre adjustment should be 0

    I would look at the information inside your view finder and adjust for that to be sharp (that doesn't vary like focus does).
