Pentax eyelens/eyepiece

I am in a bit of a predicament and needing your opinions.

My (3rd hand) Pentax KM/K2000's viewfinder is blurry due to excessive cleaning of the viewfinder eyelens/eyepiece.

After searching on ebay I found this part for the K10 model and am wondering if it will fit on my unit:

PENTAX K10D EYE PIECE REAR LENS NEW DIGITAL CAMERA ORIGINAL REPAIR PART | eBay

Please advise.

Thanks


Alvin

This might sound silly but did you ask the seller?

Yes, two days ago and no reply yet.

It looks new and shiny, unlike my viewfinder.

Different viewfinder sizes; I'd be surprised if it fit.

Thanks Marc, I'll look for the exact replacement then.

By the way, in my frustration I tried the toothpaste method last night and it cleaned the eyelens to usable state. What I did was applied a small amount of paste on a cotton buds, then buffed the viewfinder applying light pressure;dip the tip in water whenever the paste dried.

A wet and dry tissue to dissolve and clean the mess.

(Note: It worked on me but I won't recommend this method but only for those hopeless :P)
