Canon Eyecup EF for EOS Rebel Ti & T2 / Rebel K2 / Digital Rebel/Digital Rebel XT / Rebel XSi Reviews:
Perfect fit on my Canon Rebel XSi/450D
This product replaces my OEM Eyecup for my Canon Rebel XSi/450D. I had to replace my original Eyecup, because the locking tabs broke off, allowing the original eyecup to fall off the camera, all this after almost 2 years normal of use. After researching online, there was no mention that it fits an XSi/450D. But I am here to tell you that it does, and it does it perfectly. Other than the reliability of the original eyecup's tabs breaking off, I am sure that eventually I am probably going to have to replace this one as well. With that said, the fit is tight and secure and the finish is great.
Since I've lost the original (while using my SLR Camera photographing along Nature Trails) .. I've needed to replace this (after all, I DO wear Eyeglasses) to make sure that my glasses are NOT scratched when I put the Camera to my face to focus. Fits like it should. My only complaint is that they are plastic - which means that sooner or later -- this one will crack too and I'll be replacing it once again.
The Canon XSi rubber cup eye piece is a bad design and keeps falling off. The best solution is to buy the plastic part and the rubber eye piece together. And its the same price as just the rubber part.
The Canon EF eyecup keeps working itself loose on my XTi and has disappeared at the most inconvenient times. That wouldn't be a problem if it were a [$], but for the price I'd expect it to do a better job of staying attached. I'm now here ordering more backup replacements as I'm on my third one. I love Canon but they really dropped the ball on this minor part.
