Eyecup or magnifier eyecup on K10D

Hello all,
I just found out that the eyecup on my k10D is missing, I find it usefull because I wear glasses and e-bay sells them for 10 bucks.
The question is, though, since I wear glasses, I was considering getting the magnifier eyecup O-ME53 as an upgrade - for better focusing. Is this a usefull move or is it "just nice to have", or only good for special work like copying...
Thanks

A lot of us like the magnifying eyepieces, there's a thread or two about em on the Camera accessories board.

O-ME53 will magnify the viewing image slightly, but not enough to make any major impact. It will however, make the edges of the vf a bit more difficult to see. I have been using one and can tolerate it, but some can't.
