Eyecup for Pentax 67

Try as I have, there doesn't seem to be any reliable supplier (not on FleaBay...) of a decent round rubber eyecup for the Pentax 67. I have to wear glasses to focus and would like this to prevent 'clacking' against the knurled fascia. Do any of you have information about a reputable supplier of eyecups, or is it, nowadays, a matter of 'roll-your-own' with whatever you can get, modified to suit? Thanks. Garyh

It was a pain for me as well. I stitched one out of thin leather finally and I think it is better than the rubber OEM. I've heard somewhere that an old Nikon slr one may fit?

^ Hmmm? That's interesting. Very interesting. Plenty of Nikon eyecups about. So Nikons have that screw-on fascia too? Might be worth having a perve at some when I get to Sin City on Friday.

KEH has them, will cost you $33.00USD though.

Pentax 6x7 EYECUP - KEH.com

Ah, actually it would cost USD$92.95 for the eyecup posted USA -> Australia. You see, KEH, in cahoots with FedEx, would charge $59.00 on top of $33.00.
<groan> I'll keep searching...

Yes their shipping to Canada is also very expensive. I now have my KEH stuff sent across the boarder to Washington State and pick it up there. Shipping is usually about 1/5 the price and takes half the time!! (No FedEx fees/duties as well.)
