Things like viewfinders and screens regularly appear on eBay. I can't recall the last time I saw anything else, such as a data back.

Odd accessories show up on eBay once a month or so - you just need to look daily. There are even external power supplies every so often.

eBay search hint

When searching on eBay for Pentax LX accessories don't forget to also try the search term "ILX".
Items are sometimes mistakenly listed "ILX" due to the stylized print used on some of the original packaging.
