    Hi everyone
    I wonder if the rubber eye cup is still available for my
    XD 7. the one on my 700 Si will not fit. I have tried many places without luck so would be obliged for any suggestions.
    Many thanks
    Mibron.

    Hi Arturb
    The service was first class and the XD 7 is like a new camera.This should last for Twenty Years but i am afraid it will outlast me.

    Can you tell us who did the work? I too could do with making my XD7s outlive me!

    Hi Gordon
    As promised i checked with Photostore and they have not had any for over a year. Apparently Minolta started to run down on various parts two years prior to closing down. The eye piece on my old 5000 is identical but i don't have one on there either.
    Many thanks
    Mibron.

    Hi Arthurb
    The company advertises in A.P. but the information is as follows:-

    They did work for Minolta who was based in Milton Keynes and are KM specialists and approved repairers for Fuji.

    Hi Ron
    Just to say that i did't have chance to check and increase my bid before closing time so lost out.
    Once again many thanks for posting the information. I think the chance of finding another is now getting rather remote, but,i live in hope.

    Shame, however if you look for eye-cups for most of the Minolta manual cameras (they'll fit the XD) you'll get one soon enough, it's a bit of a shame but a few years back you could go into Jessops and pick items like this up quite easily, now it's a different matter
