Left eye. And I'm right handed. I understand the benefits of using the right eye, but it just doesn't work for me.
My natural tendency is to close my right eye. But if I do this too much, I end up with a sore eyes and a headache. Ultimately, the view from both eyes won't align for a period of time. No idea why. I have to consciously will myself to keep both eyes open.
This problem I had, too. Until I switched from a 40D to full-frame 5D MkII. The 7D has enough viewfinder magnification that it almost appears as a FF viewfinder, so no problem there.
