    This is a replacement for the eyecup that I had on my E-3. The one that came with the camera easily slid off. This one is a little more secure, but you still have to be careful. I like the fact that it works well for those of us who wear glasses.

      This replaces the stock eye cup that comes with the camera, it really helps cutting down stray light entering the view finder, really useful in bright situations which living in Arizona I encounter often.

              This works great for the E-520. The viewfinder area is much larger. No more moving around trying to find the details in the viewfinder.

              Comments about Olympus EP-6 Large Eyecup:

              I used this to replacethe smaller eyecup on my Olympus e620. It's hard to tell from the pictures here, but this thing is *much* larger, but it still looks fine on the camera once you get used to it, evena little cool. As far as functionality, it is a far better solution for glasses wearers. It blocks more light from getting between your lens and the viewfinder, plus the rubbery plastic is soft and can shape a bit more to your lens curvature. Being back a bit further helps you take in the image and settings below better than before. Be sure to change your diopter adjustment to compensate for abeing a bit further back form the viewfinder than before. I think it's overpriced anywhere you look, but then again maybe not. I have to say it's well worth the money already.

                          If you're one of those like myself that love the Lumix DMC-L1, you also know how ridiculously easy it is to inadvertantly lose the original eyecup. You then search the world for a replacement (not easy!!), and as luck would have it you may suffer a repeat.
                          Why put up with the hassle? The Olympus Eyecup (EP-6 is best, EP-5 also works) is larger, shields stray light, is more comfortable with glasses and is very hard to take off accidentally. All together a better product.

                                      Comments about Olympus EP-6 Large Eyecup:

                                      I have been using this on my E410 and find that it is much easier when wearing glasses I would recommend this item.

                                      This is a replacement for the eyecup that I had on my E-3. The one that came with the camera easily slid off. This one is a little more secure, but you still have to be careful. I like the fact that it works well for those of us who wear glasses.

                                        Bought this for my Olympus E-510 and it helps prevent me from having my cheek pressed against the LCD screen. This is what the bas eyecup should have been.

                                          Comments about Olympus EP-6 Large Eyecup:

                                          The EP-6 is a fantastic replacement for the standard smaller eyepieces on the E-300 and 500. It also happens to be the standard eyecup on the new top-of-line E-3. Aside from adding a more pro look and providing an added sense of security for your shoe-mount flash, it also gives better eye relief - distance of your nose from back of camera, while providing better light block-out.

                                          I have had one of these eyecups on my E300 for about sixmonths now. I wanted to try it because I thought it mighthelp me keep my face a little further away from the LCDscreen. It does do that and I have found it to be very softeven in cold weather. I think it would help eye glasswearers as well ( I don't have any yet). There is asituation that this is a big eyecup and it does take a littlespecial care to keep on the camera. It isn't that it's toolarge. It's just that it is big, and it can be brushed offthe viewfinder if your not mindful of it. I have lost onethat way, but I still think it is worth the $20 even if it'sone or two per year.

                                          Problems Encountered: Be mindful of that big eyecup hanging off the back of thecamera.
