Dork: As this is the Konica-Minolta forum, it is reasonable to assume that the D7i is a Konica-Minolta model. Just do a quick search and you would find out.

Calrec: I have a D7i and eventually the rubber eyepiece became damaged. In my case, one side got ripped and was dangling. I used rubber cement to glue it back in place. If yours is not too badly off, you could try the rubber cement too.

Reason I'm asking is mine is completely gone. I heard Minolta has an improved replacement that has to be installed at the New Jersey repair facilityl. I've asked a Minolta authorized repair dealer near Indianapolis and he said he couldn't/wouldn't do it.

Trying to locate someone who had the new eye piece installed how much is cost etc.

My parrot chewed up my eyepiece the first week I had my D7i. I got the round eyepiece from Orion and it fit perfectly. I liked it so much I adapted one to my more recent Panasonic. http://www.telescope.com/shopping/pr...iProductID=170

I didn't have to secure it. It was a perfect fit for the D7i. You stretch the rubber around the existing eyepiece.

I had to cut it and use a little glue for the FZ10 though.

Seems cheap enough - since my rubber eyepiece is completely gone (lost) maybe I can adapt it to the remaining EVF housing.

You might need a little glue - mine wasn't completely gone.
