A friend of mine never uses eyecups; 20D.
Another friend of mine never uses them just because his 30D cup fell of and he was too lay to get a new one.

The 20D cup finally fell off after a lot of use and de-attachments and attachments, but the 5D cup is impossible to take off.

Going to get a new cup for my 20D.

I recently dug up my old film Rebel (1st Gen) and Elan (also 1st Gen), and one of the eye cups are missing. Must be buried somewhere, but I'm not interested in digging further... :eek:

I've lost one, broken two and finally replaced one on my Digital Rebel...with the Eb one. On the back of the package it has the number 'CZ2-2278' which may be a part number, but who knows. Check your local camera shop, I bought mine from a local camera shop for $10.95 and I think it would fit the XT. Otherwise, buy one online...hopefully no more expensive than what I paid. The Eb looks like the eyecup on my 40D.

I think the reason I lost it was that I recently bought an L-shaped extender for my macro work. Pulling that thing on and off all the time probably made it prone to escape and try and make a new life without me and my constant abuse.

I'll be more watchful next time, let that be a warning to all you eye-cups out there!

On my XTi I kept mispacing/dropping/tem​porarily loosing the eyecup, when I totally lost it I replaced it and got the eye piece extender EP-EX15 (thanks Dad for your nose, why couldn't I get mum's?) and now its as solid as a rock without any tape, glue or welding

Mine would fall off my film rebel all the time, bought a new one the first time, then found some other poor sap's lost one a few weeks later and held on to it. Lost my new one about a month after that, used the found one, lost that one after a few weeks, never put another one on. No problems so far with my 20D.

My XT is notorious for having a loose eyecup - one the other hand, I've never had a problem with the larger one for my 30D

Has anyone used one of the bigger eye cups that actually look like a cup? Ya know, the kind that comes out to shield stray light between your eyeball and the viewfinder. Like this....

I'm thinking trying one when replacing my lost eye cup.

How do so many people lose them? Unless you're removing them to put in add ons or whatever, surely they just stay where they are?

You'd think so, but nope!

Taking the XT out of my camera bag will sometimes make the eyecup rub against something and -whammo!- it's halfway off the camera
