New Eyepiece for my X-Pro1
My X-Pro1 is finally whole again, thanks to a little help from another Japanese camera manufacturer.
From day one my X-Pro1 was missing the rubber eyepiece for the viewfinder, I bought it used from a fellow Platea member who lost it while at a photography workshop in Rumania. It was impossible to get a new eyepiece from Fujifilm Nordic, because they would have to order several hundreds, so I did a quick fix with a piece of rubber profile that I trimmed and glued into - an O-ring of sorts - so it fit snugly in the threaded hole of the viewfinder. It wasn't really the best solution for protecting my glasses and although it did provided a bit of a rubber lip my glasses have ultimately payed the price over the past year and are now in dire need of replacement.
So three weeks ago I finally got around to looking for one online and ended up ordering a replacement eyepiece from an Ebay store in Japan. Before ordering I did a little research and I can verify that the replacement eyepiece for a Nikon FM3A/FM2/FA/FE2 fits perfectly on the Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera body and looks ace.
I installed the new eyepiece with a bit of middle strength Loctite to prevent it from unscrewing and coming off, like the original eyepiece.
