Does not fit

This eye cup works well on my k1000 and my other Pentax SLR. But it seems about 1mm too small for my K10d. Any suggestions? Does Pentax SLR right angle viewfinder works on DSLR? Thanks.

The viewfinder of the K1000 was a different size than the subsequent Pentax models. Look for an eyecup that works with the MX/ME/Super/LX etc to find one that is sized for the K series DSLR.

anything from the M series onward should have the exact same size of finder, this includes all digital SLR's.

I have one that fits perfectly. The plastic piece fell out however. It could probably be put back in easily and secured; I don't use it. If interested please PM me.
