Hi,

I don't want to break any dp rules but this is what I refer to:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/221178903893?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

1.08x-1.58x zoom viewfinder eyepiece magnifier for D800 D3000 D5000 D90 D300

Seller is Phoebe_g2009 in downtown Shenzhen. I have nothing to do with them except I've bought 4 of their eyepieces and they work for me. They've replaced a DK21m and a Tenpa, which were also good - more compact but not quite as high-powered.

You have to be careful of the weakish plastic mounts, and threading in the lens - not too tight or hamfisted or something might break or the zooming thread might jam. Gently does it and they're fine. You'll need to adjust the diopter differently.

Also take care you don't lose the rubber cup, as it does slip off rather easily when taking the camera out of a padded case, as the eyepiece protrudes more than most.

Packaging is basic but service is quick. Optically pretty good. Different mounts available for just about any camera.

Cheers,

Wayne
