Default Rubber eyeguard for FZ40?

Is there a rubber eyeguard that will fit the FZ40?

Going to bump this once more, in case someone knows of something that would fit.

Thanks!

FZ150 owners on another board were gluing on pieces of felt or rubber.

Thanks for that information. I'm looking around for a rubber eyecup (maybe from binoculars) that would fit it fairly close, and then decide how to attach it.

Carol, I came across something online that suggested that these camcorder eyecups MAY work, but they are supposedly out of stock most of the time: VMG0631 or VMG0731

If the FZ40 has the same viewfinder dimensions as the FZ150, the camcorder eyecups cited may fit. I don't know which of the two fits exactly, however. See my reply in another eyecup post on this board. Be sure and bill Panasonic for the cost of the eyecup and time and aggravation :-0

Since this is the only complaint I have with the camera, I'm happy!
