Has canon or anyone other company released an eye-piece for the 7D yet?
I have looked and have had no luck finding any.

Try Thinktank. They have one that works perfectly for me. The outer piece is not foam, as it looks in the photos, it's hard material.

I've got the ThinkTank version and another, similar, eyepiece from Aquatech. I prefer the ThinkTank.

I use one of these on my 7D. Extremely comfortable and very soft rubber that you can use against eye glasses without any trouble and can be rotated for left or right eye shooters. You can find them on ebay very easily. Just search for "eye cup for canon 7D"

I generally still take off my glasses when shooting though just for comforts sake and adjust my diopter to suit me. Not so good when someone else uses my camera though because everything is out of focus for them through the viewfinder but it doesn't happen enough to worry me.

Is that the hoodman eyepiece? I have been thinking about getting one like that. I miss my eyecup from the old days.

I was using the hoodman on my 50D , it was comfortable to use but it did block the LCD screen a little bit ;) the only real problem it was easy to knock and get dislodged from the camera , the last time it came off I could'nt find it :confused:

It is indeed the hoodman. And as the poster above also said - it does block the LCD slightly but not enough to really affect you reviewing your shots. It's certainly not a deal breaker for me.

I modified my eyepiece with a magnifier. But prior to my mod, i just bought an adapter and eye cup. I don't know if it would fit on a canon. From what I was told and from reading other peoples experience it would fit so as long your eye piece is rectangular. Here is my DIY

I have these on my 5DII's. I wear glasses and the regular eyepiece has destroyed the coatings on my glasses. The Hoodman works great. I can see the entire frame, even with glasses.

Blocking the LCD is a moot point with me. It is only for quick referance any way. I may just have to break down and buy one.
