Olympus EP-10 overview

  • 1Description

The EP-10 Standard Eyecup for E-M5 Digital Camera from Olympus is a detachable rubber eyecup that offers protection for the viewfinder from scratches and the elements and helps to block stray light from entering the electronic viewfinder, which makes for clearer focusing and composition. Of course, it also provides a level of comfort for the user when looking through the viewfinder on the E-M5. The EP-10 is the eyecup that comes with the E-M5 but having a spare eyecup in your kit bag is a good idea in case the original gets lost while on vacation or assignment.

Olympus EP-10 reviews

EP-10 Standard Eyecup for E-M5 Digital Camera is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The E-M5 Usage Tax I've lost at least 5 of these in a year of shooting with them. At some point, while I didn't have on on the camera, I scratched the glass of the EVF, which isn't a disaster but definitely isn't great. If you don't have one on your camera, you'll also find that the diopter dial gets bumped a lot, causing the EVF to be out of focus when you put the camera to your eye. The eyecup is definitely the worst thing about the OM-D E-M5 and I can't think of what else to do but keep buying replacements. I've heard about some people gluing theirs on, but I've also had the rubber separate from the rigid plastic baseplate, and if it did that I'd end up with just the baseplate glued onto my camera. (Plus I'd like to sell the camera one day, and gluing things on probably doesn't help the resale value.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A weak link in the OM-D E-M5 As many have noted, the E-M5 eyecup seems badly executed. As long as it stays on the eyepiece, it works fine. But it has a tendency to come off too easily in my belt bag, or when I'm removing it from the belt bag, or when it brushes against my sweater, etc., and when it comes off it is both fragile and easy to lose. I'm on my third. (Actually, I've been using the camera with no eyecup for several weeks, and the bare eyepiece frame of the E-M5 has NOT scratched my glasses.) The four stars are a compromise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buy a Few Extras As many people have mentioned this is a very poor design from Olympus. I've lost 3 EP-10 eyecups. It is very easily dislodged and you don't realize it until well after the fact. I use my E-M5 for street and travel photography as it is small but generates great results. I usually carry two cameras and when the E-M5 is hanging from my shoulder strap while I'm shooting with my Leica it is prone to having the EP-10 knocked off. I just came back from shooting in London and lost 2 EP-10 eyecups in 2 days! I'm ordering two more but this time I plan to use Lock-Tight or something similar to keep the EP-10 on my camera.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You will loose it You *will* loose this thing at some point as the clips that hold it on are very weak and it's easy to knock off. I had the camera around my neck with a camera strap just like any other camera but that was sufficient in knocking the hood off. I'd just leave it as is but without the hood the diopter gets bumped out of adjustment frequently. This product, like Oly's other lens hood (EP-11), lens caps and lens hoods shows a complete lack of attention to quality design in their accessories resulting in the item falling apart or getting lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny piece makes a difference The Olympus E-M5 allows various eye cups. I think it must be a design flaw that the eye cup has a tendency to pop off. I have lost two already. I tried using the camera without it and although it is easy to do, it isn't comfortable, especially for someone who wears glasses. For the size and price it is worth having a few in the camera bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does What It Should As far as I can tell, it's indistinguishable from the eyecup the camera came with, which is the point of the EP-10. The big upside for me is that the eyecup prevents the diopter wheel setting from being changed constantly. That's the main reason I bothered to replace mine in the first place. The downside, as you've probably realized if you're looking at this in the first place, is that these things don't stay on the camera all that well. Buy two or three and save on the shipping, odds are you'll need another one before too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hope it stays I bought my em5 used, and it came without the standard eyecup. I've read about the problems with the eyecup having to be replaced often. My solution has been to put some rubber cement on the eyecup. So far it works well. The nice part about the rubber cement is that it isn't permanent; nevertheless, just a little seems to form a bond that appears to be holding well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't believe how many of these I lost It's not that this eye cup isn't functional, it's that it comes of the camera too easily. If you carry your E-M5 in a camera bag I guarantee that your eye cup will fall off in due time. They are pretty expensive for an essentially disposable item.
