Eyecup FB

Does anyone have one of these rubber eyecups willing to sell? I took my Pentax SF7 out of the cupboard to find the eyecup missing and searched high and low but cannot find it, so I it would be nice to find a replacement.

The SF7 eyepiece was made from a type of rubber that turned into a horrible sticky goo!! Your lucky that it's not there

The SFX was better quality, but I'm not sure if it fits or not. The eyepiece isn't needed.

The SF7 was a very basic camera. I'd buy an SFX-N and use that instead.

I've got various bits and bobs that have turned up with various cameras in the past year or so.

I'll have a look when I get home

Algernon, I bought this new about thirty years ago with a 28-80mm kit lens and a metallic grey leather case. Basic it might be but it served its purpose workwise and it still looks and works as good as new; back then I used the program mode almost exlusively but it’s time to get more experimental. The renewed interest is due to the local camera club dishing out 35mm film to the members and seeing the results later in the year.

Thanks danofmk for looking.

Found the one I have

It's a proper Pentax one, with M written on the back

No idea if that's any use but if it is PM me your address and I'll post it to you on Monday

Pentax M is not the correct one. I seem to remember the M being a circular eyepiece for the likes of the ME.

It would still fit. Pentax have only had two sizes of viewfinder, K-series and before, and M series and after.

Might not be "original" but probably works OK.

There are two or three SFX and SFXn on E bay most weeks. You ought to be able to get a cheap one for parts?
