KPS 1.3x magnifier - which version

I plan to get KPS 1.3x magnifier, however there seems to be a few versions, UMC, UCC, UC-13 etc.

Can someone help me which version to get. I plan to use it with k-x.

Thanks
Yusuf

I know the UCC version is just an eyepiece with no magnification -- don't get that.

I think the UMC and UC-13 offer the same magnification, but the UC-13 has an extra small eyepiece or something? I'm trying to figure this out myself, and the ebay listings are total confusion.

I used the UMC on my KX and now it is on my K5. It works perfectly for both.

I also noticed one version where it reads "KPS design" when you zoom into picture - sounded like KPS clone to me, any idea?

I can't find any UC-13s -- maybe the UMC is the replacement.

You're OK with either version: we haven't seen any difference, apart from there being a non-magnifying version out there, and the version that comes with a choice of eyecup or flat eyepiece being harder to find, if you really want that.
