Item Description
.
Zacuto "Pro" Viewfinder Kit - For Pentax K3iii, K3ii, K3, K-1, or K-1ii cameras! Also, it will fit other digital cameras with a 3.2" rear LCD screen and "live view".

For the last three years I've focused 100% of my K-1 photos by using a Zacuto viewfinder attached to the back of my Pentax K-1 camera. In my opinion, it's the best way to consistently nail critical focus on those narrow DOF shots (especially for older shooters like me).




There are various sizes and types 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 K3iii, K3ii, K3, K-1, or K-1ii cameras. This particular model covers these cameras entire LCD screen, with no part of the screen blocked out (like some do).

Also, unlike many stock Zacuto base-plates, this particular Zacuto base-plate is the only one that can be installed on Pentax K3iii, K3ii, K3, K-1, or K-1ii cameras and not block the battery door (see photo).

This used Zacuto viewfinder has excellent glass and a smooth operating focusing adjustment wheel. Overall it's in excellent condition, with a few minor scrapes/scratches on it. The optical glass looks pristine, but if you shine a flashlight through it and closely examine with an 8x loupe you'll find a few very faint rub marks from cleaning - obviously not an issue in everyday use.


This item has been set up for immediate use on Pentax K-1 and K-1ii cameras. If you intend to use it on a K3, K3ii, or K3iii you will need to do very minor adjustments to it.


Please note that this viewfinder will NOT fit onto a K-1 camera if the camera has a vertical grip on it. However, if you do need to shoot it on your camera that has a vertical grip on it, just replace the mount that's included with it with a
"Zacuto Z-Finder Mounting Frame for Tall DSLR Bodies".

You will receive an excellent, used Zacuto viewfinder, and all of the many extras that are show in the first photo (of course the K-1 camera shown in the photos is not included).

This viewfinder comes with 3 extender frames. If you find that the focusing wheel on this finder is not sufficient to compensate for your poor vision, you can insert one or more of these extender frames between the viewfinder and the mounting frame to achieve perfect focus.

I keep thinking how nice this would be with the old 50/1.2. One of these days...
Best of luck.
