Pros:
Well first of all it is really usefull and it works as it should. Good plastic quality and rezin flap seems last long. We will see how it survive hot sun conditions, I usually shoot indoors with it attached Easy to attach/detach with magnets Lens seems to be glass with coating, at least I hope so :-) Blocks environment lights. Lens is big enough for confortable view.
Cons:
Metal frame with adhesive stripes a little bit larger at long side than screen size. Still it does not interfere with view and or operation buttons. Field of view is not completely flat, some distortion visible. Magnets do not contact metal frame firmly at first application, you need to move plastic body of viewfinder itself just a bit to correct it's position, then magnets click for all perimeter normally.
Other:
Good quality product which works well. Very usefull as lightweight and quite compact solution prior external big LCD. And it is not expensive, especially comparing with some "brand" products.
Bottomline:
Certainly recommend it but first attend to cons though. May be you could find really flawless similar viewfinder or even better but it would cost very much to you, this thing is for money saver.
