Eye Cup- ist DL

I have been looking for a nice eye cup for my Pentax ist DL and found one on Amazon, NeewerŪ 1.3x Magnifier Eyepiece Eyecup View Finder.

Well I can say the "eye cup" is nice. It fits comfortably and looks good too. Problem is the adapter to fit on the view finder does not actually fit on the view finder. I had to get the dremel and exacto knife out and do some adjusting.

All said and done, the adapter fits snuggly on the view finder, a bit too snuggly but it does buckle anymore and doesn't fall off. In case anyone was looking I would keep on looking unless you don't mind a bit of work.

But it is better than none because my FN eye cup got brittle and cracked in two. There is ver little available for the ist DLs, at least from what I couldn't find.
