new eyecup for 645 series?

I really want a flexible eyecup for my 645N bodies. The big rigid one does not do it for me. I keep seeing the eyecups on the 645D demo bodies and it looks perfect. Is there any chance this already exists and I have just overlooked it?

That looks like a really really good eyecup. I have not seen it on any Pentax Camera until now. The big hard rubber thingie of the 645 is not the greatest, especially if you were eyeglasses.

I had a more flexible screw on eyecup that was lying around and it roughly fits the thread on the 645 eyepiece. The fit was not perfect and I use two drops of red locktite to secure it.

I used to also have some Bronica SQAi gear and would take the rubber eyecup from the ACCURFOCUS critical focusing magnifier and it fit the 645N perfectly, except it was a complete circle and would interfere a little with changing the film backs. I sold off all the Bronica gear including the ACCURFOCUS magnifier (and rubber eyecup). I think I will order a pair of replacement rubber eyecups to try again on the 645N bodies and maybe just alter it a little with some cuts to make changing film back easier.

AH! it just hit me, the Pentax hard rubber one is cut off at the bottom to clear the film insert.

I think the eyecup that I am using was from one of there odd and end clearance bin at a local photo-retailer.
