Richard, Andy: Does Olympus ME-1 work on EM-5?
Apr 30, 2012

Does the Olympus ME-1 Eye Cup Magnifier work on EM-5? The Olympus website says it is for their DSLRs, but if it would work with the EM-5 then, I think, it would extend the VF a bit from the back of the camera and make it easier for people who use their left eye. Of course, it would also make the view larger since that is their main purpose. Here is the ME-1:

There are also Sony, Nikon, and Pentax eyepieces that are similar. I don't know if any of them will work with the EM-5 though. Do you know if Olympus has one designed specifically for the EM-5? Here are some others that sometimes can be used on different brands of camera:
