I'm curious to know if any of my findings then apply to more recent ED3s or Bushnell Ms, particularly the eyecup asymmetry, which should be easy to see.
The eyecups on my Zen Ray look good. Setting the diopter retracts the eye piece when setting to the negative side and raises it when setting to the positive side. Below are photos showing my Zen Ray ED3 10X43 at the different position settings.
