ME-1 - a great addition

Having received the ME-1 bought from a forum member, I find it extremely useful, not just because of what it is, but also because it has enabled me to use something I had on my E-10, i.e. a rubber eyepiece (see pic enclosed).

It is completely psychological but I have always preferred the feeling of having the eye completely shielded from the outside light. So no reason to get this apart from comfort of use.

Re: ME-1 - a great addition

Maybe it's my eyes but I have to admit I'm underwhelmed by my ME 1.

Be careful, as mine had a tendency to slide off and I nearly lost it.

I've fixed it by tapping a tiny screw into it which acts as a stop against the slide on the camera.

Re: ME-1 - a great addition

Snap, I bought a used ME-1 to go with my E30 after reading some good reviews but I have since switched back the original as I just could not get on with it.

Re: ME-1 - a great addition

I'll pay attention to the eyecup sliding off, but when I fitted it, it was quite a tight fit.

As I am a "specky four eyes" the ME-1 is unfortunately of n use to me.
