    Have been looking for one of these for a while. I had read elsewhere a Nikon DK-21 would fit but have not managed to get that to work. Does anyone have any experience with other suitable replacements?

    I needed one of these a year or so ago and called Tamron in NY and they still had them available. I'd give that a shot.

    Thanks for the pointer Brian, I'll give that a try for sure.

    Spoke to Tamron USA, they've stopped stocking Bronica parts. If anyone has a spare piece of this I'd be happy to take it off your hands, thanks !

    Just to close out this topic, after testing a few different models, I found that a Nikon DK-20 slides in nicely. It's a bit wide and sticks out the side of the body, but that's still better than scratching my eyeglasses.
