    Mine came only with the eyecup, and if no one is going to buy it, I'll need that ring to use it. I don't care for the eye cup. I'd even trade my eye cup for the rubber ring.

    I bought the VF-2 used with the eyecup. I wear glasses and don't like eyecups generally.

    Your experience may be different, but I found that the original eyepiece with glasses was useless. Try staring down a tunnel while also seeing out both sides an obscured view. I hope it works out for you, but I'd honestly hold on to the eyecup until you've tried the original. I'm awfully tempted to send you mine, as I'm sure I will never use it again(but may need it, if I sell my viewfinder to someone who doesn't need the eyecup.

    I did, I prefer the ring. I've had three of these so far. I've been tempted to cut the bottom flat so it flexed a bit more. I find the rubber material more stiff than others I've had over the years. I think that's my issue with it.

    If you find a rubber ring and decide to sell the eyecup, I'm interested. I bought a used VF-2 that did not have a rubber ring included.
