What are the correct words to search for on Ebay to find this thing?
I have tried
P6 pentaprism
Pentacon 6 pentaprism
then with prism only, then penta only
then viewfinder

I always get zero results.

I remember Carsten looked for that once and found a whole lot.

From cupog... Click here to see on Ebay

I typed "pentacon six ttl prism" for the above.

You can also fit the Kiev 60 meter prism by way of an adapter sold by Rolf Dieter Baier:

Thank you Bob, I bookmarked it, although it is a bit expensive compared to what I've used to see. If it does not raise I'll try to snipe it.

If you do get it Orio, please let me know how you get on with it as I'm thinking of one myself.

Thanks.

Bob

I have bought the same prism in 68$ from the Czech seller (http://myworld.ebay.com/gold-camera/) six month ago. I have not tried it, but in local fotoshop they say that this TTL prism is not better than an external light meter.

I have already one of them. The problem is that inside the mirror is all dirty, or worse, it could have lost the silver, and I am totally inept at manual equipment care, so I don't risk to open it.

So the problem for me is that the viewfinder is spotty and dirty.
The light meter works perfectly in my copy, it meters without a fault.
