    O-ME53 Magnifying Eyecup is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 126.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good upgrade I love using the O-ME53 eyecup - it's a good value for the money. I can notice more fine details through my viewfinder and consequently I am getting correct focus in more shots, plus I'm no longer smearing my face all over my LCD as the eyecup sticks out a bit more. There is slight corner vignetting which requires you to move your eye a little if you need to check the corners, though I hardly notice since I've had the eyecup on for awhile. I'm told this effect is more pronounced if you wear glasses, but I always wear contacts when I'm shooting so I couldn't say myself - a all-around good product in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have I bought this accessory to solve a specific problem: With my K20D, I couldn't see the exposure information at the bottom of the viewing screen outdoors in bright daylight. It solved that problem beautifully. The magnified image is a plus. It is now my standard eyepiece.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not suitable for K20-D or K-7 As the instructions shipped with the viewfinder make clear, this eyecup is intended for use with the K10-D and earlier cameras. On the K-7 and the K-20, it cuts the viewfinder area by approximately 30-50% and, though what you see is magnified, you can no longer see the entire frame. On the K-7 in particular, which makes a point of 100% frame coverage in the viewfinder, the eyecup is much more of a hindrance than a help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall this is great! This works great on my K-30 and almost went on faster than taking it out of the package which was opening a box. I have major vision issues, yes vision issues and I'm into macro, so more help the better. I wear glasses and this sticks out just enough that I no longer have to smash my nose on the viewing screen. The one suggestion I can give, due to the magnification, would be to move your eye around to frame your picture because it's not like the original where everything just appears in the view finder. Overall this was an excellent purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for people with glasses I purchased the viewfinder because I wear prescription glasses. The viewfinder allows me to frame the shot without mashing my nose against the LCD. Also, I see a bit more detail due to the magnification. This is useful when using manual focus. The viewfinder is built by Pentax so it fits their DSLR cameras perfectly. The downside to the magnification is viewing in camera settings. You may need to shift your viewing angle slightly to see the shutter speed and other information at the bottom of the frame. All things considered, it's a must for prescription glass wearing photographers

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I started having trouble with my eyes and trying to focus with my Pentax K10. I saw the comments on this and thought I would give it a try. It works great. I now can see more clearly.
    Date published: 2009-06-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big improvement! The viewfinder on my Pentax k10D and k100D is just about the only thing I don't like about my cameras. The image is very hard for me to see. Once I put this on the improvement was obvious. I adjusted the diopter a smidge and photos I have taken with manual focus since are much better. It adds very little bulk to the camera body. I intend to get one for the other body pretty quick. There were no instructions about putting it on other than just replacing the existing eyepiece, but it slid in on the same track as the one I took off so it wasn't that hard for even me to figure out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an improvement As an eyeglasses wearer and someone who is getting on in years using the normal eyepiece on my KX and K-7 became more difficult. This magnifying eyepiece makes it easier to focus and to see the text and graphics within the viewfinder. I would reccomend this eyepiece to anyone who needs that little extra help. For those with great eyesight this eyepiece helps in that it is softer than the standard one and sits off the back of the camera further. That helps with the Nose on screen syndrome!
