Here's a cheap fast fix for this annoying problem of not being able to use the winged cups that come with these zooms. First gather together the 2" adapter barrel, the small 43mm eyecup and the winged eyecup. Next you'll need either super glue or clear silicon, your choice.

Lay the small standard eyecup down face up. Apply 3-4 dabs of glue near the top edge on the interior surface. Next press the winged eyecup gently into the standard cup keeping the top edges nice and evenly flush.
