I have lost my eyepiece before, and I can tell you that the camera is
inoperative without it (pure blur through the viewfinder). I checked DAG to
see if he listed an eyepiece on his site. Nope. Inasmuch as this happens to
just about everyone who owns a Konica Hexar RF, they are probably as scarce
as hen's teeth.

Zeiss Ikon essentially did the same thing when they shut down.  I don't know
what gives with insiders, they don't think their brand is valuable?   Any
repair center would have paid to ship the stuff to them, a place like Ritz
or several other major etailers would love to have the whole shebang of
stuff.  Fortunes have been made with collections of parts.  One of our local
repair centers made a blooming outrageous amount of money when they cornered
the battery door market for A series Canons, until someone knocked the part
off and undersold them.
