Where can I get a cheap viewfinder?

Where can I get a cheap optical viewfinder... the kind that goes onto the hotshoe? Not sure that I want to pay $200 for the Ricoh GV1. Shouldn't this kind of thing be less than $50?

Search for a Yashica Tele-Wide on the bay. Got mine for $20 shipped, as I recall.

There are threads in the Q and K-01 sections on this topic, too, FYI.

They're available on eBay quite a bit too... can get very cheap. I think I got a Zeiss one for $40 or so, I use it for sighting with longer lenses.
