    I use the magnifier one on my E510 and find it of great benefit.

    Re: L1 cup

    Olá.

    Só descobri esta lista de acessorios para as Lumix:
    http://www.panasonic.com.au/products...4&contextID=80

    onde não consta o eye-cup para a L1.

    Se o encaixe do visor for igual aos das olympus e-330 (e todas as outras), o modelo que mais se aproxima (e mais fácil de encontrar) é o DK-10 da Nikon,
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...er_Eyecup.html

    Quanto às lupas para o visor, seja Panasonic, Nikon, Olympus ou Pentax, todas são semelhantes e têm encaixe semelhante e funcionam todas em qualquer camera, com as normais incongruencias, tipo E-3 ou D-300, que não aceitam bem as lupas.
    Eu tinha uma (ME-1) com a E-330, mas vendi-a porque , com óculos, tornava-se muito complicado de ver todo o campo de visão, mas, em termos de definição e luminosidade, não havia razões de queixa.

    Um abraço

    Re: L1 cup

    Ok, my fault...

    About the pana eye cup, I only found this lumix list:
    http://www.panasonic.com.au/products...4&contextID=80

    but, no word about eye cups.

    In the leica version, one can see the same eye cup that is used in the oly E-330:
    http://us.leica-camera.com/photograp...tem/digilux_3/

    If you whant something similar to the original panasonic eye cup, the nikon DK-10 wil do, but I prefer the olympus EP-5 or EP-6.

    About magnifiers...
    I used an ME-1 with the e-330, and I found it dificult to see all the finder with my glasses on.
    MF was improved with the ME-1, but not as god (or reliable) as with the E-1 or E-3

    Re: L1 cup

    Here is the Panny version of the magnifying cup (cheaper than oly's, but pretty sure it is the same part)

    Re: L1 cup

    thanks guys.

    i saw in the panasonic japanese site that the me-1 is compatible and therefore all the others must be also (except the ones for e-3)

    that panasonic version looks good and now i just need to decide if it's worthy to get it and pay the extra $15 for it or just the regular one (olympus ep-5).

    The E-3 ones are also interchangeable, I have pulled them off both my E-500 and L-1 when the E-3 one has fallen off. Now I am totally out and waiting for more to come in. I don't understand how the E-3 eye cup falls off as often as it does, but I saw a trick for keeping them on in this forum, which I will try. But I digress, the E-3 eyecups will also work.

    Re: L1 cup

    You can replace the L1 eyecup with a standard Evolt Olympus one. I lost mine too, and replaced it with an Oly EP-5 cup from Amazon ($6.99). But it looks like Amazon is out, so just purchase it directly from the Olympus Emporium (also $6.99).

    Here is the link: https://emporium.olympus.com/innards...sku=260228-410

    About the magnifier eyecups:

    The Oly part has a round rubber surround, the Panasonic part has a square rubber surround. I use the Panasonic part on one of my L1s and like it alot. Helps with manual focus through the viewfinder, but don't expect miracles.

    I got it directly from Panasonic (needed other parts), but it was a hassle! The Panasonic parts people kept saying this was a "restricted part", and I had to wait for them to figure it out and get it authorized! It doesn't matter if you tell them you have an L1 or an L10, some red flashing lights and siren go off at Panasonic if you try to order this thing. Go with partstore.com.

    (Mr. President, there's someone trying to order... "THE EYECUP MAGNIFIER"... 2 days later...Thank you sir, we will inform the customer of your gracious decision.)

    It does make the viewfinder stick out even more on the L1. Make sure your camera bag isn't too tight.
