    Has anyone come across a larger eye cup that fits the EM-5? I'm finding that the stock one lets in a distracting amount of light depending on the angle of the sun.

    I believe the E-M5 is supposed to take standard eye-cups. The ones from the E-System DSLRs or most other DSLRs should fit. I can't verify this myself though. There is a deeper cup made for the E-M5 though, called the EP-11. I'm hearing mixed reviews on that one though. I'd like to hear from somebody if the EP-7 for the E-3/5 will work?

    I have it...and if you will be sticking your eye into it....it will be better for light issues.... If you are glass wearer, it puts you too far from the EVF 7 gives you tunnel-vision.

    Thanks for the lead. I'll get one ordered and post some thoughts when it comes in.
