Lost a77 eyecup- any suggestions?

Very happy to have received my a77 JUST prior to leaving for an extended european stay but bummed at having already lost the eyecup- called Sony US accessory sales and was told part not listed.

Same thing happened to my a700 magnifying eyecup a couple of years ago (also w/ Blackrapid strap), but had no trouble obtaining replacement (and a spare just in case) Never lost either one again and of course they are not interchangeable with a77 eyecups...

Weather is awful with flooding in Southern France and Northern Italy right now but a little worried that stray light from eyepiece may negatively affect exposures in sunlight (should the sun ever re-appear!).

Am I being paranoid?

So far enjoying camera focus speed immensely (even in low light) and appreciating weather-sealing: no problems to report with either 16-80, 70-400 or 24/2 (not being too reckless though but with monsson conditions one can't help getting wet!)

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Have Fun Taking Pictures!
