the lens band also does a nice job of keeping rain out of the mount seam (seam between camera and lens), so that is nice.
It does fit in there, but it won't do much for creep in that position -- needs to be half-on (the part that moves), half-off (the part that doesn't) at an angle.

...An aftermarket Katzeye or other focus screen would also help...
I would never own a camera without one.

Yeah, I noticed that is how it is shown in the product photos. So, that is how i had it often. And it kinda works in that position but it is pretty wonky. I will deal with it. It is a design flaw that should have been fixed by the lens designers not a rubber-band.
