Item Description
Selling these LX viewfinders due to lack of use. Detailed info about LX viewfinders can be found here:

Pentax LX - Full Info on Its Interchangeable Viewfinders

I don't see these sold often here, or even one eBay. So my asking prices are mostly slightly lower than my cost. But you can make your offer if you think the asking prices are too high. Comments on prices are very welcome too


1. LX FE-1 Waist-Level Magni-Finder - Price:$100 - SOLD!
The FE-1 combines the benefits of waist-level viewing with high image magnification (2x), making it ideal for close-up photography or any situation where critical focusing is important. Adjustable diopter correction fromó5 to +4 is built in. All data except aperture setting is visible in the viewfinder. Note: f/stop is not visible in the finder.

The selling finder is in mint condition w/ very few use mark. Other than some tiny dusts, glass is perfect. Comes w/ bottom cover and a used pouch as shown in photos:

The selling finder is in mint condition w/ very few use mark. Other than some tiny dusts, glass is perfect. Comes exactly as shown in photos:









1. LX Base FB-1 w/ Action Eyepiece FC-1 - Price: $150 - SOLD!

These are for LX cameras only. Don't think you can use them on dSLR cameras or any other cameras.

As Frank said these are for the "great" Pentax LX.

I have and use them all and their functions make doing a lot of the photography I do much easier.

The FE-1 can be used when you need to put the camera below you and you view through the top of the camera to see the image. I use it mostly for when I am doing copy work on an MP4 copy stand. It allows me to look straight ahead while the camera points strait down at the copy material.

FF-1 pretty much does the same thing but is probably more practical for outdoor use much like the old twin lens reflexes.

The FB1 with the FC1 combine to make a large pentaprism with a fantastic field of view through the eyepiece. The eyepiece is extended out from the back of the camera to make it easier on your nose and eyes to view the action. A wonderful prism setup that I always keep on one of my LX's. I call it a sports prism becasue that is what I will use it for... or capturing big birds with a 1200mm lens.

Wow Frank, these look great. Where do you get all these great gear ?

I have most of the LX finders, FE-1 not included. However, I have the FD-1 Magni-Eyepiece. I was tempted, and I should stay away from this forum :ugh:

Well, you know I buy my stuff everywhere But mostly from forum friends here, eBay, and Japan or China.

The FE-1 is pretty nice really. Actually that's the only finder other than the standard one that I really used. Just like Stephen said above, it's really useful for copy work or macro.
