I am thinking of purchasing a Sony alpha 6000 which has a viewfinder on the left corner. Given that I am left eye dominant and so would use my left eye to look through the viewfinder, will this be a massive inconvenience? I.e will this be very awkward and uncomfortable? Perhaps I won't be able to put the camera in the appropriate position because my nose will get in the way...
Comfort is obviously a subjective quality and can't really be answered objectively.
My gut says, it won't make a difference. I just held my two cameras to my left eye and it felt awkward, likely because I on't think I have ever done this before. But, nothing with my hand positions had to change to accommodate the switch of eyes.
Even quickly doing some searches, I think we have consensus:
As with all things camera and gear related though, I'd say hit your nearest camera show and hold the camera (or its closest on display model), if it feels OK there it will work. And take the time to hold some competitors too. If another camera feels even better, go with that.
I’m left eye dominant as well. I have a centered viewfinder where eye doesn’t matter, but I still use my right eye for the viewfinder. In fact, I find it easier to look what is happening around me with my left eye. Keeping both eyes open has advantages: How can one learn to shoot with both eyes open, and what are the advantages?
