Right Angle viewfinder?

I cant seem to find a good right angle viewfinder for my K10D. Anyone know of one?

Pentax once made a universal right-angle viewfinder for the AF DSLR/SLR lineup- you can proably find one on eBay. It's really clear and easy to use compared to many third-party ones.

The only one I'm finding on ebay is the ahasi pentax right angle viewfinder. I'm assuming that wont fit the larger viewfinders on the newer dslrs?

Maybe I just need to keep watching.

The Pentax Refconverter that fits ALL the recent Pentax SLRs (including the K10D) is very expensive (read over $300) and very hard to find used. When I was looking, its price was an inhibitor, so I looked elsewhere.

I bought a Seagull version that came with a series of adapters that enabled me to mount it on my *istD. The same adapter fits it to my K10D and it cost 1/4 as much as the Pentax version. Since it doesn't affect the quality of the picture, I'm quite happy with it.
