I use the magnifier on the 550 with no problem. I also use the folding LCD hood, so the extension is necessary. However, the magnifier was designed for the 350, and blocks the eyestart windows on the 550 - not a problem for me as I turn that feature off anyway.

Me too. I got tired of hearing the lens focusing all the time as i walked around (and just imagine if it made a noise while you're in the washroom!). Since i use spot focus, i need to point at what i want in focus anyway.

There are none on ebay right now. You can order it directly from Sony:

Or from B&H or Adorama for less:
