This is a 'want to buy' and also 'where to buy' query.

My viewfinder eye cup is worn out. I want to buy another. I am pretty sure this is the same item on INON/Subal/Sealux viewfinders.

Does anyone sell them as stand alone items - ideally in Europe.

Alex,
I found out when I had to replace the rubber eye cup on the GS viewfinder on my Subal Nikon D200 that a rubber sunshade fit, check a local camera store. I'm thinking it was a 37mm.I also bought a few larger and used a step down ring to fit.

best

Bernie

Thanks Bernie. I will try that.

But I am curious if anyone sells the part too?

Certainly Reef has one in their catalog if it is the one on the 180 finder, it screws on.

Alex,

 

Did you find one?  Mine is no longer functional.

 

Thanks,

$35.00, I am not sure if Jack at Optical Ocean Sales has one or not, it didn't appear in a search.
