Anyone lose their eyepiece off their em-5?

I've just bought 5 of them from China for my em-5, so if anyone needs a new one, I'm willing to send you one free of charge. Just send me a stamped addressed envelope. pm for details if you need one. Terry

Re: Anyone lose their eyepiece off their em-5?

Are they for the Mark 1 similar to the image below? I got replacement from a seller in China from ebay that took many, many weeks to arrive and the plastic was so hard it broke trying to fit it. In hindsight maybe I should have dropped in in some hot water before forcing it.

Have you received them and fitted it? If so I'd be grateful for one, whatever design they are, and if you PM address I'll send SAE.

Hi David. They are the ones. I've put one on, and they are a bit of a snug fit, so hopefully they should stay on. Will pm you my address

Re: Anyone lose their eyepiece off their em-5?

I haven't lost mine but its cracked and loose and I keep pushing it back on - only a matter of time before it goes. May I have one, please, if there are any left?

If you wrap a bit of black insulating tape round like this, you may never need it.



Yes I know it's a crap photo and the camera needs cleaning, but in a rush.

Similarly, I use a small rubber band for the same purpose.
