Lost my eyecup...

Managed to lose the eyecup off my 520 at the weekend it's happened before and I've found it in the bag or in the car, but no such luck this time...

Question now is, to get a new one (or two) Luton cameras seem to have them or to get one of the magnifying ones?

Found some links to some on ebay, such as this Pentax one:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Eyepiece-Magnifi...item19afd661d3

But I'm going to Germany at the end of the week and would like one by then... Any thoughts or recommendations?

Cheers,
Mike

Phone Luton Camera Repairs up tomorrow and order a couple, explaining you must have them by Friday. They are helpful people and post orders out quickly.

Try out a magnifying eyecup when you've got a bit more time/leisure.

Sounds like a plan.

Wasn't sure how Luton Cameras would be - their website looks a little, er, antiquated, shall we say?

Cheers,
Mike

Their website is a bit antiquated but the guy on the phone is very helpful and the service is very good.
Today I lost the second out of 4 that I bought 2 months ago.
Don't wear the camera 'naked' out of a camera bag. It rubs up and down on your clothing and falls off silently. And as has been threaded elsewhere there are solutions but I like carrying my camera in a particular way.

Ordered two – but whether they'll come by Friday I don't know... Strangely they do 2nd class or Special Delivery, but not 1st class post. Never mind, I'm glad I found somewhere that sells them. They do proper Oly lens caps, too – handy since I lost one of mine in a river a couple of years back...
