O-ME53 Magnifying Eyecup for MZ-S and/or PZ-1

Hello

I wonder whether O-ME53 would work well with relatively large (ca. 0.8x for 24x36) viewfinders of AF cameras, like MZ-S and PZ-1p?

I have never used a magnifying eyecup and I think I should try one...

Much appreciated.

I have just tried out my O-ME53 on the MZS and the Z1P (Same as the PZ-P across the pond) and it works the same as on the digital bodies. I originally bought it for the K20, then the K5 but I havn't put it on my K3-II as I find it tends to vignette unless your eye is pressed tight against it. I believe there is a database of tests for accessories like the lens ones.

I was interested in the same item, can you tell if it works with a LX or anything older like a K?

K's will have a different eyepiece size than ME-type (or digital) ones. Not sure about the various LX finders.


And my O-me53 lives on my MZ5 body. Otherwise small finder for film but full frame, works great.

If you look in photo accessories on Ebay, there are some variable magnification ones.
