I don't think you can beat this for the EX1 - I use mine indoors and out and have found it invaluable: HOODMAN EX1 KIT-Hoodman Corporation

I second Barry - the Hoodman loupe has its shortcomings, but generally I never use my EX1's LCD without it any more!

What's most important, this device enables me to use my EX1 in many various rig combinations - including the RedRock shoulder mount with their mattebox, or Olof Ekbergh's excellent "small" shoulder pad (with nanoFlash mount).

I love my Hoodman on my EX1.

Just shot 2 days with it in bright sunlight outside in the snow for some ski commercials.

I would have never been able to check critical focus without it.

I bought the Hood Loupe before the Hoodman was out, and it filled a void in the market wonderfully. Definitely, buy the Hoodman even at about twice the price. The Hood Loupe sock saved a few shoots, but it has major drawbacks such as buckling (obscures LCD), pain to mount/unmount often, falls apart, fine dust from sock coats LCD every session, and foremost, it need constant fiddling during mobile shooting. My brother took the Hood Loupe parts, found a car ashtray replacement at a hardware store and made the AshTrayLoupe. That worked better.

I bought that Sock loupe first and was impressed until I tried to use it on a job and its just not solid enough.
The Hoodman version though is terrific after they made the adjustments to adapt it properly to the EX-1.
The optics are good, it fits well and its quick and easy to remove. Plus the price is right. And don't think there is any competition.
Buy it!

BTW- I got a small "i-cuff" to make it work better with my glasses and had to adapt it a bit to fit but I do think it helps the fit where you snug up your eye. I had to cut some sewn threads to get it fit but it didn't damage anything.
