Right eye in VF, but both eyes open.

Right handed.  Golf, baseball, tennis right handed, but hockey left handed.  Mostly with both eyes open too.

Unless I'm using live view, I always use my right eye. Why? Force of habit I guess, but using my left eye would just not feel natural nor balanced. And also because my vision is better in my right eye than my left.

Right eye.

For those that shoot with their left eye, don't your noses have a tendency to hit some of the controls?

As I shoot with my right eye, My nose just messes up the lcd screen.

Generally no. But since getting my new camera, I have twice turned on live view with my nose :)

I'm gonna see if I can teach myself to use right eye. There are a few advantages with using the right eye, that I would love to get.

Primarily Left handed, but a stronger right hand...
I could shoot with either eye now (previously one was weaker than the other) so I use my right eye as that is easier with the camera!
