Hello all.

I just noticed my Diopter adjustment lever thingy is missing on my K5II.
Does anyone know where i can get a replacement?? i can't find one anywhere online.




The diopter is still adjustable. i just stick a pin in the small opening and move the lever inside left or right… but still...

How old is the camera? If still under warranty I'd claim. Unless you've managed to hit it against something it shouldn't fall off = manufacturing defect.

Johnson's may be able to advise/supply part?

I bought one from Johnsons for my gx20 a few years ago. It was around £20 with postage eek

I bought one from Johnsons (K-7) so it should be the same part. The postage was a lot more than the lever but IIRC it came in at under £10 total.

Easy to fit (and fall off it seems)
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

thanks for the replies .

I've had it well over a year now. it probably got knocked off while the eyepiece was missing.. when i replaced the eyepiece i then realised it was gone..
