Rubber EyeCup

Can someone recommend a good aftermarket eyecup for my brand new k-30?
Are the eyecups for K-r or K-5 compatible with K-30?


The one that came with camera doesn't fit well to my face and I've got stray light obscuring my view in the viewfinder.

I just got a KPS 1.3x eyepiece and l like better than the pentax O-ME53. I am pretty sure the KPS 1.3x or the O-ME53 will fit any Pentax DSLR. It doesn't let any light in and cups your eye really well. The only problem I have found is that blocks a little bit of the LCD screen. I think I got mine for around $40, just search "KPS Pentax" on ebay. The pentax O-ME53 does the job too and is not quite as large if you decided to go that route. Here is a picture.

I would agree with this when it comes to wearing glasses. I think any eyepiece is difficult with glasses, but the O-ME53 might be better since its less magnification . I always make an effort to wear my contacts when shooting.

Actually, I was looking for cup without any optical magnification. Just a simple large rubber cup
