Is there magnification on the final eyepiece?

Interesting.. Thx for posting.

I scratched my *ist D eyepiece too but I opted to just ignore it
because all those (tens of) scratches seem not affecting my view,
except when viewing bright objects or a strong light is behind me -
for both cases I think the viewfinder's uncoated plastic optics are
already unable to handle.

Is there any magnification provided by the final eyepiece?

If there is no magnification then couldn't it be easily replaced by a piece of cut, coated optical glass as I remember a previously referenced website described doing with an MZ5?

If there is magnification then this might explain why they decided to use plastic...
