    Hi All,

    I bought an Olympus EP-11 Eyecup, but I could not figure out how to remove the existing one from my e-m5 to install the new one.

    I can not find any instruction. Help!

    It slides up and out. Just press up evenly.

    LOL most people (me included) can't figure out how to stop the old one from removing itself!

    Seriously, this is a design flaw, especially if your camera goes in and out of your pocket a lot. I nearly lost the eyecup three times last weekend; fortunately I realized what was happening and inspected it each time I withdrew it. Anyone have a solution . . . rubber cement or something?

    Keep the FL-LM2 on the camera...you can't remove the eyecup with this flash on the camera!
