I am a pro photographer. In taking my camera in and out of the bag I broke the eye cup off my Canon Mark 2. I ordered what I thought was the right eye-cup from another on-line retailer and was shipped the wrong item after a 2 week delay. I was then told the right item was out of stock. I logged on to B&H, found the right part, ordered it [...] Perfect fit! i recommend B&H to all my photographers. Great job! I will use B&H in the future for my camera needs.

This is an absurdly necessary piece of equipment that can reduce your expensive camera to a cumbersome hulk if it gets lost.

Bringing your Mark II up to your face without the piece on is kind of like caressing a brick. There's no standoff between your eye and the viewfinder. You wind up smashing your face against the camera to view the data, see the meter and adjust the focal point. This piece helps that a lot.

That said, there's no reason this piece cost as much as it does and is so easily detached and lost. It is a piece of hard plastic surrounded by softer plastic. It is held on to to camera only by two small clips. For the price, it should be attached more securely or at least come with more than one per package.

      A must have on your camera. The clips on my old one was broken and kept falling off. After hitting my eye against the hard camera body I decided it's time for a new one. Does the job and is made to fit.

        Comments about Canon Eyecup EC-II:

        After 9+ years of use my 1dmk2's eyecup became very stiff. It did last through sand storms, ice storms, and eyeglass mistreatment over the years so I have buried it in the backyard with all rights.

        This new eyecup is soft soft and subtle. It's pro-love for your eye at non-pro rates.

        Just watch out your non-shooting eye doesn't get overly jealous. If so, I find the "patch of punishmnet" to be useful.

            I'm not sure how one "reviews" an eyecup. It seems sort of akin to "reviewing" a fan belt or a light switch. The original fell or was knocked off somewhere, so I bought another one. It's the same as the one that came with the camera, which is no big surprise. It fits, and it works. What else is there?

                        It is comfortable and prevents scratching eyeglasses, but it covers the diopter adjustment dial and is hard to remove so an angle finder can be used instead. After many removals the clip fails and the eyecup slips off and gets lost.

                                  Snapped right on to my late 80's canon 35mm body. Very comfortable and built great.

                                  Very useful on 1D series camera but it is loose fitting and can be lost too easily in the field.
