New to A1—Viewfinder: Is something off, or am I missing something?

I just got my A1 this afternoon, and am exploring it.

When I look through the viewfinder with my eye right up on it, everything is blurry, and I do not see a clear, sharp image. All of the lettering is blurry. Trying to see the focus as I can on the LCD is impossible.


Ah, never mind — I found the Dioptic adjustment.

RTFM!
