K10D viewfinder upgrade

Hi

I was wondering how to upgrade K10Ds already excellent viewfinder bacause I like to shoot much focusing manual.

So I was wondering if you here have good ideas for that. From the internet I have found some magnificer eyecups but i'm not sure how it works. And a friend of mine said that there could be the old style "pentaprism" (i'm not sure what's the word, because english is not my native language, anyway) viewfinder wich works much like old SLR viewfinders?

any info appreciated!

I have the Katzeye for my K20D & the "jinfinance" from Ebay on the K10D... I recommend the Katzeye, even though it is more pricey than the Ebay one, but I think it's a bit brighter... and it's horizontal, instead of diagonal...
Regards,

If you want a bigger viewfinder, I highly recommend the KPS 1.3x magnifying eyepiece. I tried it alongside the Pentax magnifyer and I find it to be superior. It's VERY well-made. You can get it on ebay, search up "U-13C magnifying" or "KPS 1.3x" or something similar.

Thanks for the answers, now I'll just have to look up places in Finland that sell such magnifiers!

Best of luck! The KPS one is made in Korea so it might be hard to find. The ebay seller ships them worldwide though.

Two words (or one hyphenated one):
Katz-Eye.

Their screen made a huge difference to my manual focusing.
