P645NII grid screen

I've picked up a like new P645NII and I've grown to really like a grid screen. Does anyone know the Pentax stock number for their grid screen? Is there more than 1 type? I think I'd rather stay with an OEM screen (Pentax). Thanks

AG-80. Plain matte with grid.

You may discover as I did that they're rather rare pieces at this late date, however. Found one a couple of years ago after quite a bit of looking around.

They are hard to find and expensive. I have two - one for my actively used body and one in a box for my inactive 645N backup body. It took me three years to find two.

I have one in each 645N and a spare. Haven't seen one on eBay for a long time.

Didn't I see just yesterday on the online Japanese Pentax store that these are still available there?

Many Japanese major camera retailers still carrying 645NII and accessories. I have seen new boxes on the shelves. Even in Hong Kong and Taipei. I think it is not exported to EU and US/Canada.

Got sniped and lost it in the last seconds Got a phone call from my son at the instant I thought I better bump up my max bid! Went for $67. How much higher do you think I should have gone? I was thinking $80?

I paid close to $100 USD for each of my two (with shipping etc.). $67 is a great price I think.

I paid only $80 for a brand new one a couple of years ago, and thought that was a lot of moolah for what's essentially just piece of plastic.

Used, they can't be all that rare. Every pro worth their salt puts grids in his or her cameras.

Dirk at Japan Exposures now has them listed in his online store. He is very easy to deal with and I have purchased a few things from him recently. He ships very quickly.
