Pros: magnification, package includes mount for other cameras
Cons: expensive

Very useful aid for manual focusing, easy to mount. Comes in package with manual, additional screws, screwdriver and mounts for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Olympus dSLRs. Only minor con is that ruber eyepiece covers a bit of the LCD screen.
KPS magnifier is usualy expensive on Ebay....at around 30+ , but I bought it for a very reasonable price via private seller. Still it is very helpful with MF lenses.

Pros: Magnification--clear eyepiece--Eyecup choices
Cons:

Before owning this eyepiece, I was using the Pentax O-ME53. Though that did help, I wasn't fully happy with it. I read some threads here at the Forum, from others who were using this eyepiece--reports were very positive, so I bought one.

A couple of minutes to install it, and I have not looked back--sold the Pentax eyepiece @ our Marketplace. This KPS eyepiece is about twice the costs of the Pentax, but I find it worth the extra $$.

It has 2 eyecups, one of which is full, & allows you to completely sheild your shooting eye from any extraneous light, thereby dilating the pupil. With maximum pupil dilation, your shooting eye can make the most out of the light which is in the viewfinder. The added magnification of this product is awesome, though you need to search the viewfinder to find the edges, just like when using the Pentax magnyfier.

The only problem I had with it was, after miles of hiking with the camera on my shoulders, the eyecup would sometimes unthread itself from the eyepiece. which almost had me losing it for good. However, I finally placed some drying silicone on the threads of the eyepiece and the eyecup has not moved since.
