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 consistently nail critical focus with fast manual focus lenses (especially for older shooters like me).

Above is a short video on the value of using this very viewfinder, and how to use it.

There are various sizes of Zacuto viewfinders, and I've owned all of them. I've finally settled on this size/model that's the perfect match for the Pentax K-1 camera. This one covers the entire K-1 LCD screen, with no part of the screen blocked out (like some do).

Also, unlike many stock Zacuto baseplates, with this particular baseplate you can open the battery compartment door with the viewfinder is still 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 used Zacuto viewfinder has pristine glass and a smooth operating focusing adjustment wheel (just did a CLA on it). A few scraches on the base plate, and one pad has been re-glued.

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 an excellent, used Zacuto viewfinder, and all of the extras that are show in the last 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, K-1 II, or K-3 (or adjusting it for your vision) I'll be happy to help you out either over the phone or via email.

I've already sold a number of these Zacuto viewfinders here on the Pentax Forums. They always sell out right away - so "first come first served".
