Repair broken viewfinder

Any suggestions on how to replace/repair the K30 glass viewfinder (that you put your eye up against) that cracked?

I sent mine to CRIS. The cost was about $200 + shipping, and maybe a 3 week turnaround time? Maybe longer.

I had CRIS replace one on K-7, it was less than that ($150ish, I think) -- that was couple years ago.

OK, thanks. Glad to know I'm not alone. I did get an estimate for $96 at an authorized dealer so I guess I'll jump on that.
