    Is this a bigger eyecup then the standard eye cup? Also what model hood is that? I'd like to order one. Thanks!

    This sounds like when I was waiting on my iPad. I had ordered several accessories to go with my iPad. I got the first box and it was the flash card adaptor and the power unit. Then a day later I got my video adaptor. It was several more days before I got my actual iPad.

    I bet it is common that the accessories go out first , few of them ordered and thus orders easy to fill.

    I found that the hood for my 9-18 fits perfectly - they are both 52mm across so I can share filters too

    Np...

    The EP-11 is a larger eyecup, esp. good for glass-wearers.

    ...and the Lens Hood bayonet is the LH-55B: Olympus - M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 EZ (Look at the bottom of the page)

    I do recommend getting an off brand: Amazon.com: RinbowImaging Lens Hood for Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4.0 -5.6 Lens , replaces Olympus lens hood LH-55B: Camera & Photo

    ^ Yes I actually got the after-market one, cheaper but hopefully similar enough.

    Would you care posting a picture of the eyecup attached to your em-5 once it comes in?

    I admire your restraint. I'd be going mad, waiting.

    Sweet! I'm excited to get some wireless flash going. Years ago I used to only shoot wireless flash for location portraits and I miss it. Very simple but effective to get killer results for editorial. Joe McNally has great tutorials on the subject. It's all Nikon but the knowledge translates to any gear.
