Unfortunately, I doubt it, since the lens is around 30 years old at this point. You might be able to find a lens for parts on eBay, though, or have a window 3D-printed by someone with an appropriate machine.

I have one that the front element got damaged by the post office during shipping. I'm still waiting on a complete insurance claim with them (they paid part of it and it it's been going on since February) before I do anything with the damaged lens. I have someone interested in part of it. If that part doesn't include the window than i will have that available, if/when this insurance claim ever gets settled. I don't want to do anything with the lens until I settle with the post office.
