Finding replacement rubber eye pieces for my binonculars
The rubber piece that goes around the eye pieces has rotted. I need to order new rubber pieces as the binoculars are wonderful but not comfortable with out the rubber. Where can you order those pieces?
These are the guys you need to contact if you are in the USA;
They make a lot of the binoculars for B+L who make the optics, including the legacy models.
Hope this helps :)

That is the drive coupler and it has worn out. You can order a replacement set that comes with two plastic retaining pieces that slide onto both your transmission and engine and also a rubber piece that goes in between these two plastic pieces. You can search many places to find out how to replace this part. I just ordered a set and shopped around a bit and mine was $20 after shipping.
You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.
I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately Binoculars.com is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.
I had the sme problem and took it took wolf camera. they would not support it. Soo I used it this way for a year with no problems. The inner LCD craked and and finally bought a new Z712 today for 199.00!
