Olympus do 2 sizes, I prefer the large one (though it may be more prone to being dislodged, I personally don't find this problem).


If you google, you may find alternatives to the OEM eyecups.

Hey - it's not on, all this 'getting round the problem'. Loosing eyecups, especially if you have invested in a BIGGER one, is a pain.

Re: Viewfinder eye cup

Slightly off topic, does anyone know why the eyecups for the omd-em5 mk1 are so expensive ?

I can find plenty of cheaper 'copy' ones for the em1 and em10, some for pennies, but none for mine.

Can anyone tell me if the ep-15 (mk2) will fit the mk1 ?
