Viewfinder DEmagnifier

Hello,

I own a K-500 I wear glasses and I need a demagnifier to the viewfinder since the corners aren't
visible if I don't rotate my eyes to reach them. also the lower part of green display in the viewfinder
are not visible.

Anyone with the prob ? Any solution ?

The K3 M30129 have tick rubber that will increase the distance.
Is this eyecup FS compatible with K-500 that normally use FR type One ?

Thanks a lot!

I do believe that the eyecups are interchangeable, so yes. You might also want to use live view in situations where the vinewfinder isn't convenient to work with

I don't have this problem with the viewfinder on my K10D. It was a problem on most film cameras. It may be a problem with the new DSLRs with 100% view in the finder. I just learned to live with it or think about contact lenses or LASIK.
