Alternative Eye Cups?

Can anyone recommend any alternative eye cups for the EM1-II, it doesn't seem as good to use as the Mark I imo? Does the Mark I fit the Mark II?

Yes, it does fit.
I had the large version on my E-M1, and transferred it to my new E-M1 mk2.

I've just been looking into the large eyecup and looking at images it seems to 'overhang' the LCD screen, have you found any hinderance with the large eye cup when trying to flip out the vari-angle screen?

It doesn't overhang, or affect the operation of the vari-angle screen, and as I wear glasses, I prefer it to the smaller version.

Thanks, I think I'll get one. As a left eye shooter my nose always fouls against the LCD

Re: Alternative Eye Cups?

No third party ones when I bought mine.
It does work although not as well as the one I bought for my GX9.
Think it needs to be a bit longer so you can really press your face/eye into it.
Cuts out a fair bit of glare and mostly stops my nose activating the screen.
