I went and damaged the piece of glass on the eyepiece.... I'll blame it on the camera bag. I want to order this piece but Olympus won't sell it, it is only held in with 4 screws and is very easy to replace. They say the only way to fix it is to send it in for repair since it's a non-serviceable part.

I hate to think what labour charges might be for this small fix. Does anyone know where I can purchase one or has a dead camera and would like to make a couple dollars?

Thanks for any help.

You might have luck buying a non functioning camera on eBay or something.

Its probably the same part on all the 400 and 510/520 series cameras. so if you can find a broken one on eBay you're good.
