Part required for old Canon F1 : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

I have been using an old-style Canon F1 for about 25 years. The pentaprism is removable and one of the two pins which release it has fallen out and disappeared.

New parts are obviously not available for this wonderous machine. I am wondering where I might find a used pentaprism (preferably broken) that I could scrounge one of the pins from. Any ideas?

Thanks for any help,

David Novak

eBay usually has used F-1 prisms for sale. In fact, there is one now on eBay, auctions ends 7/29, with a "buy it now" price of $40.

Good luck,
