Avenon Kobalux 28mm viewfinder

Does anyone knows if it can be disassembled for cleaning? Been Googling around but can't find any info about it.



Thanks a lot in advance, cheers!

Get a thick rubber band to grab the ring that holds the eyepiece in and try to unscrew it. Make note of the glass orientation before dropping it out. If it is glued in, a dab of acetone should free it up.

I'm looking for a 28mm viewfinder for my Ricoh GR1 (for use with a 3:2 ratio). Is this Avenon viewfinder suitable for that? I would appreciate your advice.

Thanks.

The Avenon finder has of course a 2:3 frame in it...
