I'm on a budget and am considering purchasing either the XW30 or XW40 eyepiece as my widefield/finder to replace my Baader Asperhic 31mm, as it's just shy of having enough eye relief for me to be comfortable using it with my dioptrx. I've found a lot of great information about them, but I'd appreciate it if those in the know could confirm a few things for me.
1. Are the 30/40mm SW's the same optical design as the 30/40-R eyepieces? I've read that they have some difference in weight, but I'm unsure if this is due to a change in the housing.
2. If the housing has been changed since they've begun to be produced again, is it still easy to install a dioptrx by removing the eyecup and metal ring, then replacing the eyecup?
3. If you've used a dioptrx with either of these yourself, please let me know your experience. Is the field stop visible and sharp with good eye placement, or does one need to look around for it?
Thanks for your time folks
