     On a similar note, I've been trying on and off to find a ROUND eyecup to 
fit my E-500/510 cameras.  There are plenty of the egg-shaped ones available, 
but those don't work well when wearing glasses.  Rather than having to adjust

suitable eyecup.

for use with eyeglasses:

     I've also considered modifying an older eyecup for the OM-1/2, but the 
mounting flange on the E-500/510 body is wider than for the OM-1/2.
