Since end january I'm an happy owner of the E-500 with double lens kit. Bought it rather cheap with the 2 kit lenses (€649 in the Netherlands). I've the ME-1 enlarging eyepiece too. Pro's and cons discussed enough on the various forums, but I'm happy with it.. But when working on a tripod and with the remote you've to close the viewfinder with the small eyepiece cover, which is prone to get lost some time as is the case with the flash hotshoe cover. With the ME-1 eyepiece I use for closing the viewfinderthe black round canin whicha 35mm film cartridge is packed.That fits perfectly. Then you don't have to take off the eyepiece too. Perhaps some members can use the tip. Didn't find it on the various forums.
