This is a good solution to a design flaw of the camera--a view finder that is flush with the back of the camera. Notice that the pro bodies have a built in extension... I miss that about my 1D mark II...

I'd like it just the way it is, but I took the advice of another reviewer and removed the plastic lens elements. Just remove the two screws, then take out the two plastic lenses and the metal plate holding the lenses. Screw the eye-piece together without these pieces, and you have an extender that doesn't diminish the magnification of the view finder as much. Also, this mod eliminates glare on the view finder when the sun is to my back.

This modification takes a minute at most, and it doesn't take any more time to put it back "the way it's supposed to be," if you don't like it.

This custom mod. makes the extender fit tighter to the camera, so there is no danger of it falling off. But even without this modification, there is little danger of loosing the eye-piece as some reviewers say. It fits on as tight as the normal eye-piece, and unless you are in the habit of throwing your camera around, it won't get knocked off ever.

I witnessed a friend using the EP-EX15 Eye Piece extender and thought I would try it. After getting it, it took a while to get use to it. I did not like it at first, becasue I only purchased one and I did not have one on my other camera and it was hard to use considering only one camera had it on it and it was hard to go back and forth. After giving it a chance and purchasing another one for my other camera I like it. It is great when you have a vertical grip extender and especially when you want your face and cheek away from the camera and do not want sweat and smudges off the LCD Screen. I do not like the fact it reduces your field of view and takes a few minutes to recompose your shot, but once you get things in line, you are on your way to taking great pics. I do not understand the reduction in field of view, but over all it works great.

    Comments about EP-EX15 Eyepiece Extender for Select Canon EOS Cameras:

    With the EP-EX15 Eyepiece on my Canon 6D the monitor is much easier to read. This is due to my nose being moved away from the camera thereby touching the monitor less depositing less "nose Grease."

      While the product fits fine and does what it is meant to the 30% magnification is not justified by the 15mm.

        I wear Glasses and this helps me to see all of the eye-only viewfinder! I am so happy of my capability to see all of the Boarders of the eye-only viewfinder that I bought a new/unused version of it! Now I am going to give my Canon EOS Rebel 2000 to a Repair place to Tune-it-Up so I can know for sure that It is in Top Shape!Every Camera should have this extension! I used Nikon D3200 and I had problems finding all of the Eye-only viewfinder's boarders!! I would buy a eye piece extender for it but it was not my Camera!

        Part is a pressure fit and doesn't lock into place. Be careful when carrying your camera over the shoulder. I keep loosing these when the camera hits the body just right and it slides out.

          I use this on my Canon 6D. As a Canon product, it's quality is great and increases facial distance from the camera.

          The only bad thing is the reduction in view. I saw a post somewhere, suggesting the removal of the lenses inside the eyepiece extender... I actually tried this... and while it was simple to do, I feel it made the product look cheap, so I put the lenses back in it.

            I needed the eye piece a little longer so I did not have to smash my noise against the back LCD. This works great. Just long enough and I can easily see the inside settings at the bottom of the viewfinder.

              I inherited a 5D Mk II, and always thought the eyepiece was a little off kilter. Images often looked blurry in the eyepiece, eventhough they turned out in focus. I recently realized that the camera had the EP-EX15 extender installed. I removed it, and the difference was like night and day. Without the extender everything looks just as it should in the eyepiece: crisp and clear. It may just be my eyes (I don't wear glasses), but my 5D Mk II experience is much better sans EP-EX15.

                    There is nothing wrong with the quality of this item but there is some confusion about whether it will fit the 5D Mk III. It does not. Also the EP-EX15 does not fit. They are both too small.

                        Bought this to use on a Canon 600D to to get a fuller view of the viewfinder as I wear glasses and to reduce smudges on the LCD (from my nose pressing against it). For me however it really didn't work. The reduction in viewfinder size was too large and the new size way too small to make out necessary detail and on this camera it didn't give enough distance to successfully reduce smudges. The other key issue I found was that being further out seemed allow more light to reflect off my glasses and again affect the viewfinder resolution.

                        Being weary of smearing my nose prints all over the LCD screen on my Canon EOS Rebel T3i, I was looking for an eyepiece extender to help solve the problem. The added 5/8 inch extension goes a long way toward resolving the issue. The magnification takes a little getting used to, but is a very minor problem...easy to use with or without eyeglasses. Losing such a small item is not an issue for me since it will remain on the camera.

                            Great transaction with B&H! The item was shipped fast and is exactly as described. Fit nicely on my Canon, it was replacing the original piece that somehow broke a clip and would not stay on.

                            I had the old piece and am glad I did not toss it. Turns out I needed the rubber (cup?) from the original. It also fit on there like a glove.

                            So, the eyepiece extender is on there snug, the rubber (rim?) fit on there perfectly - I am all set!

                                It will keep your nose off the lcd screen, but it reduces the viewfinder information by about 1/3 and you get vignetting on all 4 corners.

                                    This simple eyepiece allows me to see the entire screen on my Canon 5D without having to scan up and down or side to side saving all kinds of time in composing shots.

                                      Having to in the past continually clean the back of the camera and also being a wearer of specs, I have found this item to be well worth the money. It fits well and there has been no problems with it being loose or not properly affixed.

                                          A real necessity to keep the LCD clean from nose smudges! I also found the extender to be very useful when I am wearing my glasses. Simple and easy to install.

                                            have this on my 60d. had the mk ii version, but it was too small. this is the one that fits. since the image in the viewfinder is reduced it allows me to see the whole picture better, without having to shift my eyes from one spot to another too many times. and my face isnt smudging the screen all the time. maybe just the tip of my nose. though when focusing manually maybe prove to be a bit more difficult.
