    I use a rubber hose gasket. It doesn't stay forever but they only cost a few cents compared to ~$30

    Bump.

    "O" rings also work, but eventually fall off. I Just thought someone might have one from a broken camera that wasn't going to be repaired.

    You probably know this already, but B&H has them and they appear to be in-stock and free shipping on the eyepiece.

    And there is also this guy (who I've had both good and not-so-good) dealings with on Nikon eyepeices: http://www.bocaphoto.com/products/ne...n/nikonacc.htm

    I just checked them out too, but they are hard plastic, it seems.

    I believe the generic ones are indeed hard plastic. I just bit the bullet and paid the price for a genuine Nikon eyepiece with rubber. In the end it was well worth the price.

    one is plastic, but they have a different one in aluminum for around $8. However, the plastic might be easier on plastic eyeglass lenses.

    you could email the repair shops given the fitting is common someone may have an original part from a scrap camera.

    It is either prescription specs or rubber so I bought new old stock.
