    Wink a6000 Silicon cover and two eyecups US$13.40

    Silicon "sleeve" and two eye cups for the a6000 for less than the price of one eye cup at Sony:

    It takes awhile to arrive, coming from Hong Kong, but so far, so good. Great deal, at the least. The cover has a really nice grippy feel to it, and helps reduce random PASM and control wheel spinning and power cycling, addressing a couple of minor annoyances I had. The portion covering the AEL and Fn. buttons is a bit floppy, and the scroll wheel is tougher to manipulate, though.

    Thanks Brian for sharing...does this cover become a huge lint magnet?

    Not so far, but I've only had it installed for a couple of days now. I'll keep an eye out for that!

    -- Update: Still no lint (or dust!) attraction a week later. I bought this kit for the eye cups, but find that I like the cover even better than said cups which I think are too small and chintzy.
