    Hi Guys :smile:
    I have lost or misplaced my OMD's eye cup and I am just wondering from where to get a new one ?
    Any help or suggestion is appreciated .
    Cheers

    Do note that EP-11 is different than the original (EP-10). EP-11 protrudes much more (About 2x compared to EP-10?), which has its pros and cons.

    The big con (for me anyway) is that it blocks a portion of the screen if you position the camera around your chest height and look down to the screen... which is unfortunately how I often use my OMD.

    Your local Olympus dealer/where you bought your camera?

    That's a cool option to have, if you use the eyecup a lot in bright daylight.

    lost my stock one nobody seems to have the 10 in stock so ordered the 11 ? will see

    almost thinking someway to make them a bit more stay on dont really want to use a drop or two of silicone but seems they come off pretty easy ?

    any thoughts on that from anyone ?

    since I wear glasses heard mixed reviews on the 11 but worth a shot :)

    I replaced my lost EP-10 from Olympus U.S.A. about a month ago, so I'd check Olympus in Australia.

    People say the EP-11 cuts the view for glasses wearers -- that would be me; put them on before I get out of bed and don't take them off until I'm ready to shut out the light for the day.

    I keep forgetting that you're Down Under... :frown:

    $67 does seem to be a tad expensive for an item that weighs in at about an ounce...
