Default E 3 Eye cup .. is it the Ep-6 or ep5 ?

Hi Guys

I need to get a replacement eye cup for the E3 as the orignals gone on holidays without asking. I've not been able to work out if the eye cup is the Ep-6 or not so any suggestions to what it is would be great.

Cheers

Harj

Hi harj: the standard eye cup for the E-3 and the E-30 is the EP-5. ( You can also use the EP-7)

The EP-6 is a wide one that requires you to take it off whenever you are mounting or dismounting an external flash.

Hi Guys Thanks for the replies.. I just found Oly's details really un clear as to what Eye cup you need to order. Brian, thanks for that link.. you know the EP7 isn;t even on Oly;s uk website! I'm going to call Luton cameras tomorrow - theyre actually recommened by Oly UK to do out of warranty repairs. The LCD problem they quoted 60-70 all in to fix but first a new eye cup! Cheers Harj
