    I got one of these too. The rubber could maybe be a little but it's great.

    I got one of these too. The rubber could maybe be a little softer but it's great.

    Hi, is this for X-T1 or X-T2. I know it might be the same but when I applied my old X-T1 eye cap to my new X-T2 and it is hard to put on. Thanks

    It looks ideal for cutting out stray light, Is it suitable for use without glasses?

    Thanks Koi. I has a similarly shaped one on my D700 and found that it was excellent at excluding light coming in from the side, which is even more necessary with a mirrorless camera,

    It's superb for shooting sports on sunny days.

    My eyecup arrived yesterday and although it was larger than I anticipated, when fitted to my X-T1 it seemed to dwarf it :), it did completely exclude any extraneous light. However I did find that, as remarked upon by another poster, the rubber was quite firm around the edge and as my eyes are quite deep set it felt uncomfortable.

    I examined it closely and realised that the rubber on the outside was softer that that on the inside and it appeared that it could be reversed by removing the mount and putting the hood on the other way around. I did this and found that not only did it work as well regarding light exclusion, but it was also much more comfortable against my face than before. I've attached a couple of photos to show how it looks on and off the X-T1.
