New eyepiece for MX


Does anyone knows of an eyepiece compatible with an MX? Something still in production, any brand, and not from ebay please :-)

Eyepiece? The ocular for the MX is not removable. Do you mean an eyecup or diopter adapter or something else?

Nikon correction lens adapters for the FG / EM (1979 - 1984) fit the Pentax M eyepiece frame (they are rectangular, not the round eyecup type). I used them on my MX and MESuper until I found the correct diopter in the Pentax OEM variety.

If you can research the dimensions of that part perhaps a good camera store can supply you with a current eyecup.
