Interesting. How do you know which # you need? Quick Google only brings one aus place that sells it (and no US) and they ask the exact number to ship.

Just guess? Seems odd
I suppose the smart way would be to refer to your optometrist's prescription.

Could be unwise to expect items like that to be off-the shelf though.

As it's not an official user-changeable item (like focus screens aren't) it's probably expected that the buyer would need to order through an official Pentax dealer who'd be able to perform or arrange the fitting for them.

Any DIY activity is always a warranty killer.

It is perfectly user installable. It just slides over the viewfinder.

if mirror is dirty, do you advice to clean it with a lenspen?
or another method?
I wouldn't touch the mirror. It's silvered on the top, so if you scratch it or peel off the silver, it's ruined.

Blow it off with a rocket blower. If it's smudged, I don't know. I've never touched mine, and I never will if I can help it.
