Yes, I suppose so, I don't want to risk invalidating the guarantee. I do wish it locked on a bit more securely, though.

I will have to modify my camera bag as it's the act of taking it in and out of the foam padding that causes it to be dislodged.
That's the same for medical conditions. People often worry about the symptoms & forget about the cause, so it is probably a very good idea to deal with the cause, of taking it out of your bag. I found the same problem & a bag that won't drag on protruding parts has got to be a better solution to start with.

As far as the eyecup is concerned, the standard EP-15 Eyecup only fits the E-M5 II along with the EP-16 large eyecup. I would be interested to know if they could physically fit on the E-M1, but may sit too high for proper access to the Accessories Port (between the EVF & hotshoe) as the E-M10 eyecup does on the E-M5.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
