Summary: It's an eyecup. It works. It fits my old Canon Rebel G that had gone without an eyecup for like five years. Then I decided it's time to be nice and give the old camera a replacement eyecup. The camera was grateful—so grateful it threw a party in my honor. The other guests included the nosecup, the pizza guy, and the very hot & gorgeous Canon 1D MarkIII which I've had my eye on for a while now. You don't want to know the rest.
Summary: The Canon Eb eyecup does exactly what it is intended to do, add a lille cushion between your eye and the view finder of your camera. This is the same eyecup that Canon includes with it's cameras. Canon's design has one significant flaw; the eyecup does not securely attach to the camera. The eyecup has two small plastic tabs that hold it in place but a small amount of pressure allows the eyecup to slide right off of the camera.
Summary: Of all the eyecups I've tried, the Eb eyecup by Canon was the best! It didn't poke my eye out at all! Not once, and I look through it every time I take a picture! The only bad thing about it is that it smells kind of funny.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Improves Function, Lightweight
Summary: This little thing is a must have on your camera, especially if you use glasses. However it tends to get lost sometimes during those long hikes through rough back country terrain. Thankfully it's easy to order a spare.
Summary: Maybe its just me but I think this piece, which seems to easily pop off the 10D, has a little more grip to the camera than the one I lost. My previous one was original to the camera and I had used black electrical tape to secure it along with the extender, to my camera. Over time the tape lost its sticking power and poof the eyecup and extender were gone.
Summary: The eyecup is critical for comfort and basic functionality. My old one began to breakdown from wear and tear after a few years of heavy use. This new Eb eyecup seems slightly larger for a more comfortable fit. Plus the rubber pad is securely fixed.
Summary: This Eyecup slips easily onto the camera in all of about 2 seconds! It simply is a comfort item, and keeps your face from being smashed up against your camera when your focusing in on that perfect shot!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Improves Function, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Summary: The Canon eyecup is fine in every respect except one major flaw - the locking mechanism sucks. Sooner or later you will find that it has come off and is lost. If you use the EP-EX15 extender as I do it will be sooner. You would think that by now Canon would have improved this but not so far so buy a spare - you will need it sooner or later...

Summary: This is an exact replacement for what comes withthe camera (and is always coming off and gettinglost). If you are OK with that one, you'll beOK with this one.I give it only 2 stars because it does alwaysseem to come off when I slide my camera into thecamera bag, and it gets looser and looser overtime the more it comes off and is put back on.There's really no reason for such an unimportantpiece to be so annoying.
