Where is this blog? Google was not my friend and Amazon search turns up nothing.

It was Elliot Paul Stern (Elliot Stern) who drew attention to the X-Pro2 replacement eye pieces offered by JJC. Here's the link to his blog post:

I have yet to lose the rubber eye piece on my X-Pro2 but I've gone ahead and ordered both offerings made by JJC (EF-XPRO2 and EF-XPRO2G). Purchase is actually made through AliExpress.

Elliot (not Eric) Paul Stern, that's why you were out of luck:

AMAZON (they are calling them "eyecup" instead of "eyepiece", that's why you and I both couldn't find them at first):

Sorry for my typing error. It was done while walking. Below is the link to amazon for the eyepiece replacement. 

 

eyepiece for fujifilm pro2-jjc

 

I have lost one of them and when I receive my replacement rom Fuji I placed as minuscule amount of super glue to hold it in place and haven't lost one since. I would just say that doing this is at your own risk. The lille I placed was such that I could remove it if and when I. sold the camera. Again, sorry for exchanging Elliot to Eric.

Yes they come off way too easy.  I called Fuji North America and they want $5 for the eyepiece but $15.50 for shipping!  It's almost $23 after taxes.  Crazy!  I luckily found what I thought was a lost one in my bag so I sprayed a little hairspray on it before I put it on.  Seems to hold better.  Time will tell.

 

If someone wants the part # it's BF00015761-100 - CONST EYE PIECE

 

I haven't run into the problem (yet) but I like your idea. Surely cheap enough and not hard to remove if necessary. Much rather keep the $23 in my own pocket.

I had never lost an eyecup, however I was lured into buying the larger model for eyeglasses wearers (JJC EF-XPRO2G). I thought they were the screw-on type, like on my Nikons, but no such luck.

 

So, I took the original one off, it broke in the process... well, no big deal, as I was about to replace it by a bigger and better one... but I never could manage to insert it or have it stick properly, and of course there is nowhere on the web where one can find a tutorial for this thing, and the page of the guy's blog is gone... All in all, quite a disastrous experience so far, I would seriously advise people against attempting it, and I don't know what I will do now, with my original eyecup gone and my being incapable of putting a new one in... and I'm not the clumsiest person.

One hour later, I managed to sort of make do with Super-Glue but it looks ugly, the eyecup is slightly slanted, the back glass of the viewfinder got smeared in the process and looks hazy around the perimeter, where some of the glue spilled over when pressure was applied to make the whole thing stick, and keeping my eye to the viewfinder is impossible for more than 10 seconds or so, because of the irritating/burning glue fumes/emanations that are apparently still coming out (for how long? we shall see).

 

I have also managed to get ahold of the aforementioned blog page, where the guy says prominently that the fit of the JJC eyecups is not good and he doesn't recommend the product... Only wish I had seen this before!

 

STAY AWAY from all replacement eyecups until Fuji provides a threaded mount, which should be par for the course on an expensive and so-called "expert" mirrorless camera!
