If it is anything like the later models eyecups, it is latched onto place......it is not glued on as it is designed to be removed/replaceable.

As far as I have found it is the item EP-10 and looks like third party replacements are widely available.


Yeah the eye cup itself is easy to replace. Just pops on I think, and cheap and readily available.

The part I need to put back on / repair first it the little plastic surround / clip that the eye cup sits on. If you pulled the eye cup off you would see it. Like a little black surround sits around the metal viewfinder. Mine is broken so I just can't see how it attaches or if I just glue it back on

The eyepiece I describe is integral with the plastic mount that latches on the body. The rubber part and the mount are not sold separately.

I can only suggest that you look for the EP-10 in your geographic area and buy one (on the surmise that I have identified the correct Olympus component part code ~ the latter models EM-5 mk2 onwards it seems use the EP-15)

How does that little hard black plastic piece fit on? It sort of looks like it sits under the metal edge and I doubt it would be flexible enough to just wrestle it on? Yes you are right about the Mk11 and Mk111 being different.
