The -3 diopter setting on my T4i is barely what I need, maybe good enough, but i would love to have a -4 or -5 diopter. I read in a guide to the T4i that there are diopter replacement that go all the way to -12. But I searched google, I searched Amazon, nothing coming up. Anybody have any ideas where I could get a replacement (enhanced) eyepiece/diopter? I normally wear eyeglasses and it would be so nice to be able to just shoot through the viewfinder instead of live mode using the LCD panel on the back. I don't like contact lenses. I really want to figure out where to find a -4 or more diopter and replace that so I can just use my unaided eye looking through the diopter/eyepiece. Any help greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing this lens adds an additional -3 adjustment on top of what you can already dial-in.

Thank you so much, nice, i am going to order that -4 tomorrow. My T4i goes down to -3 which feels almost right, I am sure -4 would cinch it for me. Thanks again!

Just received the -4 diopter from Canon store, ordered it two days ago free shipping, talk about fast delivery, nice. Put it on my T4i, wow, amazing, so nice that now i can use my camera without my eyeglasses, shoot through the eyepiece just like before the days of LCD panels on the back, turned off Live View, don't need it.
