Looking for a +1 Diopter for Mamiya 7, desperately

Hello everyone !

I am desperately looking for a +1 diopter for a Mamiya 7 camera.

I have looked everywhere, but was unable to find one.

I hope someone here can help me !

I think it is the same diopter correction piece (rectangular) that also goes on the Mamiya 645 PRO TL camera...

Thanks!

I found, and bought, a used one in good condition (but not in original box) via eBay from a commercial Japanese seller late last year. Price was cheap (less than $30 US), shipping from Japan to Germany was surprisingly fast. No complaints.


So I'd suggest browsing the offers from Japan.

Hi do you remember where you bought it, or can post a link?

I have looked everywhere on the internet but haven't found any seller with this in stock.

Thank you

Worst case scenario, I have taken cheap drugstore reading glasses and popped out the lenses (usually plastic) and carved & filed them down to make diopters for some of my older, more obscure cameras. Works pretty well.

Best,

This is where I got mine, but it looks like he is out of that prescription in the Mamiya 7 size now:
