You'll need to buy corrective eyepieces. Choose from -4, -3, -2, -1, +1, +2, +3.

The reflex finder RM2 (52183) adjusts +/- 5 D but the flex body 903SWC version RMfx (72530) does not and optician supplied are needed.
PM90 uses interchangeable but the PME90 -2 to +0.5 are built in with std. additions possible. The PME45 has a built in diopter correction of -2 to +1
Also the range of interchangeables quoted is correct except for the PME90 version which runs -4.5 to +3.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

Back in the old days customers would get a lens made by an optician to fit in the eyepiece and on the older prisms there was a retaining ring in the eyepiece to hold it. This could be an option perhaps?

I had an optician make me up a corrective eyepiece to match my prescription and mounted it on my RMfx using the kit supplied by Hasselblad. The combination of huge eyepiece and personal prescription resulted in the best finder I've ever used. Using it on the ArcBody was a joy.
