Canon R8 Eyecup structure damage

I damage the eyecup structure that holds it with the body when I was travelling. The structure with the screw was broken and the eyecup is not firm anymore. Is this possible to be repaired? 😞

Greetings,

Sorry this has happened.  This appears repairable, but its not going to be inexpensive.  This portion of the eyepiece is part of the top assembly.  If you have a Carepak thats a plus.  Next step, register your product in MyCanon, open a support case and you'll get an estimated cost for repair.  The camera will need to be inspected.

Thank you very much for your reply. I will contact Canon support and see how it goes.

Hope it works out.  Here is a better angle.  Following the lines of the body, its not the top, but the back of the body that will need to be replaced.
