Anyone use a third party eye cup for the 5D III? I was going to get one for the 7D because it would frequently let light in and wasn't so comfortable, but I upgraded to the 5D III when it was available.

From what I understand, there are some third party ones that are deeper and more comfortable.

I've not seen any TBH but I would be interested in finding one if it didn't restrict vision too much.

It is suppose to give you better vision as it blocks the light better and it is a more comfortable fit.

I just recently bought a Hoodman eyecup for my 7D - it is fantastic, and keeps out all unwanted light.
It does get in the way of the top portion of the LCD, but is still better than struggling with sunny day light interference of the viewfinder.
I just ordered another one for my 5D3 yesterday.


just a few of my thoughts...

+1 on the hoodman Hoodeye. I've used one on all my cameras and now have one on my 5d3. Great for blocking light when looking through viewfinder.

The 5d3 uses same replacements as 1d and 7d series cameras, by the way.
