Anyone using an I-cuff on the GL2/XM2?

Iíve seen a number of very positive reports in the XL1 forum, about Ira Raider's I-cuff Viewfinder Camera Eyecup (http://www.i-cuff.com)

Does anyone here have experience with the I-cuff on the GL2/XM2? How well does the I-cuff DV fit and work on the GL2? Is the I-cuff installed over the rubber eyecup? How is the fit when the camera is already wrapped up in a Porta-Brace Rain Slicker?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Looks neat! - Maybe I wont "glow" so much. My Rubber gets awfully steamy - well . . enough said . .. But, yes seems like a good option.

Grazie

Ken,
I use one one my GL2 and it works just fine. Easy on, easy off over the existing eye cup. It's handy to have for bright daylight shooting and if you wear glasses.

I would recommend the Hoodman over the I-Cuff. I often depend on the viewfinder to give me an additional amount of image stabilization, and the I-Cuff has a bad tendency of "plane" movement (to clarify, it often makes handheld shooting more difficult). The Hoodman works very well on the GL2. If you are shooting from a tripod, please ignore my comments.
