    a few reviewers have noted the eyecup on the MK 2 lets in allot of extraneous light and doesn't seal with the eye very well, and I too am really bothered by this.....are there any alternate rubber eyepieces that can be used with the Mk2?

    I saw that- but there's no real description of what it dos other than it's larger.
    I don't know if it would seal the eye better?

    Do you feel it seals your eye better than the original eye cup?

    I find the larger eyecup a huge increase in useability. Huge. Not having to press the camera so close to my face makes it much easier to look down, and it means I can often shoot with my left eye open, which has substantial benefits for me.

    I highly recommend trying aftermarket eyecups out.

    Which aftermarket larger eye cups will fit the OM D-E5 II precisely?
