    Hi all,
    I am using an external viewfinder for my beloved nex-f3. Today I have unfortunately lost the small black cap where one rests his eye for shooting...
    Should I commit suicide?

    First, no, you should not commit suicide.

    Second, yes, you should prepare your wallet for a hit. The replacement parts are unbelievably expensive. If I recall correctly, the standard part runs about €100, the bigger one €160. Maybe you can find a cheap no name replacement part somewhere.

    I lost the eyecup for my a7. I called sony to order a replacement, and they overnighted one to me for free. I'm not sure why they did it, but I was very happy.
