DK-5 - it's only £4.00 but...
Have I misplaced this eyepiece cover or are we expected to buy it? They're nearly £4.00 you know!
It would have come in handy taking a few shots in a church recently. I used my own MkI-hand instead, but made me wonder if I should have had one when I initially opened my D200?

Yes, there should've been one in the box.
I have loads of them (well, at least 3) but I can't remember the last time I used one. The only real benefit is when using the self-timer or remote release in bright light (especially if the main light source is behind the camera) when not in manual mode, if you shoot in manual then there's no problem.

If you can shop in the US (if they will ship), here's a place I recently found:
Lots of covers- (I lost my PC and remote terminal caps the week I got my camera)- lens caps, LCD covers, etc
Just checked- I hope I just missed it but they seem to have everything but the eyepiece cover for the D200.

I use a DK-20 on the viewfinder and can wrap a rubber band around the eyecup underwhich I palce the corner of a small dark cloth. I dropt the cloth down to shoot and lift it up to focus and compose, sort of like a viewfinder camera. And a piece of cloth is a lot easier to find than a DK-5.

Thanks for coming back to me this folks. I know the D80 comes with one so I kinda guessed I might have had one in the box but I just don't recall seeing it. I'll have another look later this evening. I never throw anything out.
The Mk1-Hand works just as well until I sort it
