Add me to the lost eyepiece club

I use a Abrahamsson Mini Soft Release button when I do handheld shooting. To keep this button firmly seated I applied a single drop of clear nail polish to one side of the button's threads and let it dry to tacky before screwing it in. It has never backed itself out since then though I take it off regularly to use the cable release (on a tripod). I believe this approach will secure the threaded diopter as well without detriment to the camera or optical surfaces.


I would avoid the nail polish on optical parts. The solvents in it *might* cause some bad side effects.

The solvent (acetone)evaporates very quickly in air.
