I was at a shoot over weekend, using the DK17m magnifying eyepiece.. very nice.. and the DK19 big rubber eye cup attachment..

I love this combo, its very nice and pleasure to use (big clear image in VF)

It was difficult getting the DK19 onto the DK17m originally.. there is n included some metal ring and it fits on just barely to hte rear of the rubber piece.. holding it onto the DK17m glass eye piece..

I had read reports that this piece falls off a lot and someone had put o-rings, etc.. to keep it from falling off

For sure after 3 days.. my small metal ring on the back also fell off.. and then i almost lost the rubber DK19 cup... thanksfully still in my bag

ANY ADVICE HOW TO GET THIS THING BACK ON OR GLUE IT TO THE DK17 or ETC?

thanks
