The Canon MG-Ef magnifying eyepiece is apparently a discontinued replacement eyepiece for selected Canon cameras that magnifies the image by a factor of 1.2.

The 80D is not listed among the selected cameras but at about $35 it might be worth trying if you need the magnification.

I didn't find any details about construction.

Oh yes, my mistake. That's the one for the Rebels. It should fit the 80D but would look undersized. MG-EB is the one designed for X0D/7D with a wider eyecup but has the same specifications. I have not seen either sold in stores, only for 70$ CAD on Canon Canada's store (it was on sale a few weeks ago for 55$). The NIkon DK-21M is less than 30$ CAD.

US $36.00

Not sure what the classification would be (some classifications such as computers are free) but in any case import duty on items mailed/shipped from the US is only 5%.
