Nikon D60 rubber eyecup/eye piece (DK-20)

I should’ve known that some dude in a camera shop in Alice Springs wouldn’t know a whole lot about dSLRs. Stereotype fulfilled. By the time I got to Alice about a month ago, my D60′s eyecup was starting to fall apart and I wanted to get a replacement. The guy was unsure if such a thing existed and recommended a bit of superglue. I suddenly got very protective of the D60 body… no crazy outback solutions here, please!

Anyway. DK-20 is the eyecup part and it cost me all of $3.50 on eBay — it’s alarmingly genuine, too!

When I found it I was pretty thankful that the guy in Alice hadn’t had a clue… probably would’ve cost at least three times that!
