    Hi folks

    I'm looking to get the EP-9 eye cup for the VF-2 viewfinder, but I can't seem to find it anywhere that has a resonable shipping cost to Oz! I did place an order with B&H recently but in my rush forgot to put it in the order :(  Plus I don't think any camera stores in Australia stock it. It doesn't appear to be on Oly AU's web site either.

    I've been thinking there'd be 3rd party or alternatives, but I can't seem to find any? I would've thought some clever person would have been able to use/modify an eyecup from another camera to fit? So far, Googling reveals nothing on that front.

    I'd happily pay the US$15-20 it seems to cost to buy one, but I can't justify paying US$30+ for postage for something that'd fit in a tiny padded envelope!

    Unless someone has one they want to sell? ;) 

    Thanks!

    Elshaneo has a for sale ad, in which he is showing a vf-2 with EP-9 eyecup attached. He is in Australia, and maybe he would sell you just the eyecup. Good luck.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll see if he'd wants to sell it separately.

    I am surprised there are no 3rd party alternatives or 'modded' solutions!

    ^they try to trick people into think that it is the vf2 itself, which is why they put the price so high.

    Was this a one off sale or are there more available? I'm in the same situation and would love a link :)

    I thought I got the last one, but looks like they've advertised more.
