On my mz-s the remote terminal cover turned to a gooey mess. Pity they didn't make the covers as well as they did in the days of the LX!

I agree which is why I went with a better than Pentax alternative.

They are from K10D British Ingenuity Unlimited. Remember where you saw this first.

Its a two part assembly. Part 1 is a 5mm LED clip and part 2 is an M6 socket head screw cap cover.

So here are the parts

They do not separate when being removed from the socket.

Don't ponder too long on how I come up with these things, it's just a bad habit I have (amongst others).

Sorry to hijack this thread,

The MZ-S cover was still listed as a spare part about a year ago. Ricehigh gave the part number on his site, but I've never been able to find the page again.

Thanks for the DIY tip Gary.

Gooey rubber viewfinders are a problem with SF7's. Remove it if you have one ...... SFX's were OK.

You'll have to buy an LX for each of them.

I spent a long time looking on eBay and ordered the bits (identical looking to those above) and made one myself but it is not a good fit on my mz-s. Too tight. Did any one else try with better luck?

I have reached out to K10d (Gary) who has very kindly agreed to help me out 😀
