If it's the same size as the K10D, I have one I can send you.

Take the opportunity to add a bubble level. Some are very low profile and can cost ~$3.

Universal Hot Shoe Spirit Level reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database
I'm in the process of getting one that doesn't require you to read it from the top, from Camera Levels by Ross Photographic Accessories, USA. With my camera mounted with the viewfinder at eye level, it would be almost impossible for me to read a low profile one. This one from Ross, granted is more expensive, but very well built and when folded down, is not in the way; and they are made right there at Ross Photographic, USA.

I think XXX cannibalizes them from bodies they buy and like lens caps, sells them separately!

They wouldn't get rich doing that, you can buy 10 for around $5 on EBay or Amazon.

Yes, but 10 x 5.99 x 1000 = serious money! Plus shipping. But who cares, OP found his in the couch. I find everything in the couch, except my Mother-in-Law.

I solved the problem, turned her into an ex-mother-in-law now I don't have to worry about finding her there.
