I use the Voigtlander/Cosina 35mm finder on a IIIf/Summaron 35 combo. While
I do not know the magnification (no such information was provided with the
finder, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere else), it can be used
with both eyes open.

It is a very good finder, IMO, big, bright, and clear, like those for their
15 and 25 lenses. It has the benefit of well-defined brightlines and the
ever-popular "dashed" line for parallax correction. It is also relatively
inexpensive: you can get one for about $125 USD.
