homemade diopter eyepiece

I have posted this description of making a diopter eyepeice for $10-15 max on other sites, and to be honest I am tired of embedding 8 photographs, redoing links, etc. So instead of posting it here, I will provide a link-

Flickr: Discussing homemade diopter eyepiece in Pentaxians

This allows me to actually see the info in the viewfinder and focus my MX or ME Super without using reading glasses. It would also be useful on other Pentax camera since the same eyepiece does fit my K10d.

That's pretty darn slick!

Thanks for posting, the link is just fine (at least to my tastes).

Thanks for your post and the link, all is clear and seems easy.

I will need to make sure those cups fit my LX, but that is all.

Hilo, every reference I can find indicates that the LX viewfinder takes the same fittings as other Pentax cameras of this period. In fact, I think that the link to the eyecup in the description I posted lists LX as one of the models.
