Leveling View

My KM has an odd problem, the viewfinder eyepiece is slightly askew, and if I don't check to be sure what I am using to level the scene - the eyepiece or the edge of the viewing screen - I can end up with tilted framing. Are there any aftermarket mods with a way to level the view other than a hotshoe bubble level?

Touché, but it would be nice to have something center-screen. I am spoiled by medium format, I guess.

Unfortunately your camera lacks interchangeable screens. Grid lines were available on screens that fit later models like the LX and MX, but most cameras of the day had a VERY plain viewfinder. Sort of refreshing though...
