ep ex15

Hello

 

I hope that I am right in this forum-subject.

 

Does sombody have experience with this item? How do you see the image when looking through the OVF of your 5D MkIII FF Camera?

 

Best regards, Alex

Re: ep ex15

The EP-EX15 does not fit the 5D Mk III.  There are 3rd party alternatives for the 7D and 1D Mk IV which also fit the 5D Mk III.

 

More info here:   Eyepiece extender for the 5D mark III?

No it definitely fits according to the Canon information:

 

http://www.canon.de/For_Home/preislisten/

 

There you can see tables that show the 5D Mk III. I must beliefe that this Info is correct as it is from Canon . . .

Unfortunately the German site is wrong. It is impossible for the EP-EX 15 II to fit both the 5D Mk II and the 5D Mk III as they have very different sized eyepieces. 

 

The Canon USA compatibility list is much more accurate:  Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15 II

 

B&H Photo also gives the correct compatibility:  Canon EP-EX15 II Eyepiece Extender for Select Canon DSLRs

I must say that this sounds plausible . . .

 

Unfortunately I have ordered it already.

Now you have an excuse to buy a 5D Mk II as a back up camera.  Smiley Wink
