Extreme OVF Magnification . .

Being old, my eyesight is quite poor (que pobrecito). In spite of that, I prefer manual focus most of the time. And I love the 10X magnification on my Panasonic 'focus by wire' system.

So I thought, what if I use a 10X jeweler's loupe in front of my Sigma DSLR's OVF when the focus needs to be spot-on? I have such a loupe that has a head-clip and I do intend to try it some time.

What are y'alls predictions?
