Anyone ever heard of Andoer magnifying eye piece?

Andoer 1.51X Fixed Focus Viewfinder Eyepiece Eyecup Magnifier for Canon Nikon Sony Pentax. Right now I have the O-ME53 on my K-50, I'm looking for something better and saw the above on Amazon. I also looked at a Tenpa 1.36x but they aren't available on Amazon right now. And no, I don't wear glasses.

I think 1.51x is too much -- I use a 1.35x on my k-5 and already it can be hard to see all the corners at once. Mine is a KPS brand -- doesn't seem to be around anymore, but ones branded SMDV look like the same thing, and supposedly universal fit. I'm thinking mine was Pentax-specific, I'll have to check the packaging I have around somewhere.

EDIT:
Nope: it was a universal fit. Looks to be exactly the same as this one:

https://www.amazon.com/SMDV-Magnifying-Universal-Eyepiece-E01/dp/B00V8IU7MO/...1.35x+eyepiece

I like it anyway -- had it for years and I even have an unopened one for a body I haven't bought yet...

Thanks but that's a bit more than I wanted to pay. Pentax's is only $22. and change. Since I already have one, I can take that one off the K-50 and put it on the K-30 for now. Btw, it works great on the K-50.

Yep. I think you find 1.51x way too much though so the 1.2x is preferable to that. I've never tried the Pentax one, but I tried the 1.22x Tenpa before I got this and decided I wanted more, but not that much more...

Another brand I was looking at says it goes from 1.08x to 1.51x.
