I don't know if it's any use to you, but AFAIK the eyepiece adaptors are covered in rubber so not to scratch glasses (so you don't necessarily need the eyecup).

The link below shows the options available from B&H and the light green column that is headed up with "FA" shows the eyepieces that work with the DK-22 adaptor that fits the d600:
