Yes, picture quality is not affected, but as you may have guessed, I have to be able to see...and in my usual environments everything gets dirty pretty fast. 2-3 weeks and I have to clean my guitars off, sitting in the house...

I guess the only thing I can do is call Pentax, I can't find a viewfinder replacement anywhere except the katz eye, and I'm not sure I want that. Can't afford over 100 bucks right now anyway...

Anyway thanks for all the input, it's definitely appreciated.

Well, that wouldn't help anyway. That's a replacement focusing screen, not viewfinder lens. The focusing screen is located inside the body, above the mirror. That's not what's scratched.

Thanks for the info, I thought the katz eye was a viewfinder...shows how little I know about it...

I guess I'm stuck for now, until I can get a job two and put some money together, I can't find a viewfinder anywhere.

I did get it cleaned up a little, newspaper did a pretty good job of polishing it.
