Right Angle Viewfinder for 645D

I recently bought the 645D (and am loving it, BTW). Can anyone recommend a high quality right angle viewfinder that is compatible with the 645D? I know Opteka makes a universal one (see 1st link below), but I'm unsure of its quality. I also know that there is an angle viewfinder for the 645 (see 2nd link below). Has anyone had experience with either one on the 645D? Is there something better out there, preferably one with an optional magnifier? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 645D could use the same angle finder the original 645 and 645NII used - though the chances of finding one of those these days is in the same probability category as winning 1st division prize in the lottery and being struck by lightning at the same time.

Hoodman used to make a universal right angle finder but they don't seem to list it anymore. I found it here on Amazon. YMMV

I use the Pentax 645 Refconverter with my 645D. It is perfect. The entire viewfinder can be seen and there seem to be no loss in quality nor brightness. I bought mine at KEH when I bought my camera. No magnifier though.

I think you will be pleased. It has been one of those accessories that surprise--I have used in more situations than I imagined, although it gets a little weird when handholding the camera (the drunk waist-level finder effect). I really recommend this accessory for the 645D.

so would that also mean you could use the rubber eye cup from the 645D on the 645N?
