I've had to close the door after the horse had bolted! I now stick the remaining one on with a small piece of sellotape.

I'm sure you can get them, but don't worry overmuch, I don't remember ever keeping one on a camera for more than a week and it's never caused any problems in neary 30 years of SLR's both Film & Digital

Regards
Andy

The Olympus America Emporium will only ship to addresses in North America, so you would need to find a "front-man" if you are outside their franchise area.
