Replacing D7i viewfinder rubber eyepiece
 
Anyone know how much Minolta charges to replace the rubber eye piece on the D7i?

I put a telescope eyepiece I got from Orion on mine. My parrot chewed up the one on the camera the first day I had it. That turned out to be a good deal as the telescope eyepiece gives me a much brighter EVF in bright light. I put one on my FZ10 as well.

Rubber eyepiece
 
Slipe, thanks.
Please give me part number and where to buy that eyepiece. Also, what cement did you use to hold it on the camera?

I used Velcro glue. Hard to find but very strong. It fits pretty tightly so you donít need anything special.
