Hey all,

The eyecup on my K-1 took a beating while covering the Basingstoke Music Festival, has anyone seen any replacements for sale. The office Pentax store have them listed for 8.99 but out of stock

None listed on SRS.

Thanks,

If it is the same one as the K3 and K5 you can get them off Ebay for a fiver (knockoffs, but perfectly usable)
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

The K-1 eyecup has a slightly larger rubber bit and labelled FT, the K-3 II (labelled FS) does fit the K-1.

Bit pricier but a decent seller with some history.
