    Anybody know what that rubber thing I lost is for and where I could get a replacement? I barely noticed it missing today. uploadfromtaptalk1452973451975.

    It's a cap for the flash PC sync port. They might be universal fit for those generic ones on eBay/Amazon, otherwise try asking Olympus.

    It's not made from rubber, but hard plastic. It has a very fine thread and must have taken quite a while to unthread itself.
    I had the MkII for half a year and this is the first time I even notice the port...

    Hard to say. Mine does not have the flash symbol embossed on it.
    It would probably be a good idea to call and get the part number confirmed.

    Looks about right.

    I called the Olympus service number on their website for my replacement and it cost $4 for the part (and an additional $4 for postage)

    I seem to somehow always lose the little things that are attached to my em5ii!
