Subject: [Leica] Canon DSLR R lens use

I forget if anyone has mentioned this, but to further aid in focusing,
replace the Canon eyecup with the Nikon DK-21M eyepiece magnifier.  It works
wonders.  Between the two, you will have many more hits than misses.

It is a perfect fit but does not lock into place.  Some have found it slips
but I don't have that problem in my XTi.
