K-5 viewfinder, any improvement?

I like the viewfinder, but in low light it is hard to see. (I only do manual focus, I have not tried the autofocus yet) The LCD screen is so bright even when I set it dim... in the evening and night time the LCD light makes it very hard to see through viewfinder! Is there anything to help? Maybe an extra eye piece that will get the eye further away from the LCD? Thank you

Hit the INFO button a few times to disable the LCD when shooting.

You can simply turn off the LCD illumination in the Custom Menu Settings, item #22.
