    There an eyepiece extender EP-EX15 for canon D10. In addition to making the
    eyepoint higher, it reduces magnification by 30%.

    Why can't it maintain the same image size?

    If I hold the camera 1cm from my eye, wouldn't I achieve about the same
    result without this accessory?

    Where does it say the extender reduces 'magnification' by 30%.. Do you have a
    link to a source of info on this ?

    As far as I know, it's just a square tube that keeps your eye further back from
    the viewfinder and in doing so, it keeps your nose from touching the LCD.

    Go to B&H and search for EP-EX15, then click on more info.
    At least another web site also says the same thing about magnification.

    OK.. I found it..

    They even have a picture of it that shows the eyepiece has a lens. I was
    thinking of getting one, (to keep my nose off the camera body), but I don't
    want to do this at the expense of a smaller image in the viewfinder..
