Using Vortex Media VSB1 Mount

Does anyone know if, when using the Vortex Media VSB1 Mount with an EX1R, you can use your left eye on the viewfinder comfortably? I'm "left-eye" dominant for focusing and, although I like the VSB1, if I'm not sure it will work out for me. I would rather not buy it and have to send it back if I can avoid that. Would appreciate any info on this.

Hi Tom,

Sure, it will work left eye or right eye because it puts the camera in front of your face instead of in front of your right shoulde -- which, as you know, would force you to really cock your head over. http://www.vortexmedia.com/images/VSB1_photo5L.jpg

Fantastic! Thanks for the quick reply and info. I like the design of that particular shoulder mount very much.
