    .85x Magnifier For Eyeglass Wearers...

    So i just recently became aware of these de-magnifiers available from Match Technical:

    http://matchtechnical.com/EyeCupMag.aspx

    And HKSupplies:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/0-85-x-0-85x-for...d=p3286.c0.m14

    The HK supplies one is around $100 cheaper.

    Does anyone use these on their M? I've only seen one other post about this:

    http://photo.net/leica-rangefinders-forum/00Jb79

    And it seems to claim that it just makes the viewfinder smaller, but doesn't really allow you to see any additional view in the viewfinder itself.

    Can anyone make a claim either way?

    I'm particularly interested to see if this will allow me to more easily achieve framing with the 28mm framelines on an m8.

    I am having Dejavu, I thought I had already answered this.

    I have the HK supplies version. They just make the image smaller, you do not see any more of the frame.

    Do you know where the original thread is?

    Also, does anyone know if the Match technical version works?
