    Nothing like OEM replacement parts. However I would like to comment regarding the use of 'other' non-brand name eyecups .. on top of the SLT-A77 is a button labled: Finder/LCD .. when using an eyecup that covers the A77 photo-sensor (just above the viewfinder) you can press this button to get full use of the LCD . . otherwise your LCD won't work with the NON-OEM eye-cup..The FDA-EP12 is a perfect replacement though and B&H is a trustworthy supplier.

    It works great when it's on but why does it come off? The problem started with Sony A55 and A77 is not any better. The eye piece comes of during routine use, when taking the camera out of the camera bag. The alternative eye pieces from independent makers hold on much better.

    However, the Sony automatic switch from LCD to viefinder view when you bring the camera close to your eye is a wonderful feature. It stops working when those other eye pieces are installed.

    This should not be happening Sony.

    This is a replacement part. The original eye piece came off when getting my camera out of the bag. Eye piece itself is fine, but Sony could do a better job of not making it so easy to come off.

    Bought this as a replacement. Good quality. Good cushion against eye glasses. Could be tighter fit around eyepiece on camera. The one that came with the camera kept slipping off. Didn't have this happening with other cameras.

                          I ordered two of these eyepieces, as I find that they come easily detached. The EVF needs this to provide shade in bright conditions.
