Eyecup arrived today. Thoughts are that it doesn't look as good on the camera but it is much better. I don't have to crush my nose against the LCD to get a good seal around my eye now

Re: Alternative Eye Cups?

I wear specs, this AM I tried an OLY EP-13 on my E-M1:2 and IMVHO it was useless.

However, remove your specs and it's great.

In area it's much the same as the one fitted, it sticks out further, the rubber is very hard, with very little give.

Sorry to disagree with previous contributors re. specs.
