The Fuji X pro 2 is a wonderful and highly capable camera and in simple terms “Love” the one I own just as I have “loved” all of the Fuji X cameras I have owned.

But the rubber eyepiece on the back of the Fuji X pro 2 has been a big problem for a lot of users and perhaps even future users.  It simply pulls loose from the camera and can do so sitting in a camera bag or by rubbing against the photographers clothing.

Fuji has handled this problem in different countries in different ways and that makes no sense at all that it would not be universally addressed.  In the United States, Fuji is kind enough to replace the rubber eyepiece when you give them the serial number of your camera.  It takes about 7 days from the time of the phone call to my mail box.

But in other countries they want users to send their cameras in for service because they say the assembly must be taken apart to fix the eyepiece problem.

For a company that is the best I have seen in camera industry for customer service in regards to firmware upgrades, this whole process is difficult to understand.

I have lost my eyepiece several times not due to mishandling but due to a poorly implemented rubber eyepiece and how it is attached to the camera.

JJC is a company out of China and they are now making replacement eyepieces for the X pro 2.  One looks like the standard eyepiece and the other seems to be a different design aimed at eyeglass wearers

They are selling these eyepieces either directly (not the best way to get them) or through Amazon.  Amazon China was the first Amazon to have them and now they are available at Amazon UK and Amazon USA, but you should really check your own local Amazon to see if they have them.  I used this description which is on the JJC web site to search my Amazon by copying and pasting into my Amazon search.

It seems that it is not a matter if it is going to happen that your own eyepiece decides to come off it is a matter of when.  When it does come off it could allow dust to get into the EVF.
