Item Description
For the last two years I've shot 100% of my K-1 photos with a Zacuto viewfinder attached to the back of my K-1's. In my opinion, it's the best wait to nail critical focus with fast lenses & wide apertures on manual focus lenses.

Above is a short video by Lloyd Chambers on the value of using this very viewfinder, and how he uses it.

There are various sizes of Zacuto viewfinders, and I've owned a number of them. I've finally settled on this size/model as the perfect match for the Pentax K-1 camera. This one covers the entire K-1 LCD screen, with no part of it blocked out (like some do). Unlike stock Zacuto baseplates, you can open the battery compartment door with this "customized" viewfinder attached.

This one's all set up and ready to go. Just attach it to the bottom of your K-1, adjust the focusing wheel to fit your particular visual acuity, and you're ready to consistently nail focus with your fast manual focus lenses. This viewfinder has pristine glass and a smooth operating focusing adjustment wheel.

Please note that this viewfinder will NOT fit onto a K-1 camera if the camera has a vertical grip on it.

You will receive all of the extras that are show in the first photo. Of course the K-1 camera shown in the photos is not included.

If you have any problem installing this viewfinder on your K-1 or K-3 (or adjusting it for your vision) I'll be happy to help you either over the phone or via email.
