Pentax K-1 Body Cover

I really like the new body cover that comes with the K-1 which screws on to the mount. Seems much more secure than the old white pop-on covers. I found those often came loose or fell off in my bag, potentially exposing the sensor to dust. I'd like to get another one of these K-1 style body covers for my K-3ii. I looked and can't find these for sale separately. Anyone know if this is sold separately?

The part name would be "Body Cap K II". It's a new design so it might not be available yet.

The K II is a nice improvement, even over the film-era bayonet caps, which actually placed a little wear on the camera's contacts when being mounted and dis-mounted. The K II's hollow design prevents this

Generic K-mount body caps with bayonet tabs are readily available for less than $5 USD at both B&H and Adorama...Amazon too.
