The only issue is with stray light. There are no rubber eye guards on mine, so I sometimes have to cup my hands around the eyepieces to cut out the stray light.
I used to own pairs of all the CZJ orthos except the 8mm. They are so rare I never could get anyone to part with theirs so I could have a pair. I still have a pair of the 12.5 orthos, but the others have been replaced with ZAO-II.

I also own the 25mm, 16mm,10mm jena's i know i could use glasspath corrector but i would rather just get another 6mm

Sounds like a good plan to me. I am NOT in favor of changing the Glass Path Corrector during a session. It is far too easy to drop it or stick your thumb on it as you dismantle the pieces.
I do my setting up before I go outside and spend the time outside enjoying the views.
