Default Hoodman-pentax compatability

I was wondering if the Hoodman products would fit my K10D. I would like to purchase the right angle viewer and eye cup if they fit Pentax bodies. In the ad they only mention canon and nikon, but I wanted to check and see if anyone has tested them with Pentax. Thanks

I'm not sure. I've wanted to do this, but I can't find anything similar for Pentax.

Yes they do. Here is a link: http://www.adorama.com/HNHRAV.html

There is another one made in China called Seagull.

Pentax still makes one, but it is not cheap and is hard to find, but B&H has it

There are quite a few less expensive ones on ebay, including some used ones by Pentax, but be careful to get only Pentax Finder M or Finder A, which have a dual magnification switch. The original taller Pentax finder for the screw-mount bodies has only one magnification and will not fit, as it fits a smaller finder window.

I have the right angel view finder made by Fotodiox. Its very similar to the Hoodman but cost less. ($75)it has switch lever to change from 1X or 2X magnification. I really like it for macro work.
