I haven't been able to find a store that sells it. I am not sure what the model number is. I found a DK-5 but the D7000 is not listed as one of the compatible cameras. Does anyone know where to buy one? Thanks
You may also want to look at the GGS II screen protector. I got one for my D7000 and never looked back. It's clearer and more scratch resistant than the Nikon plastic one. It also seals the LCD better so you won't get as much dust/dirt between the protector and the LCD screen.
They're available at Amazon, but get the GGS II not GGS III if you buy one. The ratings dropped on the GGS III because they tried to include the eye piece.
Just a thought.

The OP is asking about the cover for the little eye hole view finder. This needs to be covered when using the camera's self timer or a remote release. It is needed to prevent additional light entering the pentaprisim housing and confusing the Automatic Exposure sensors. The AE sensors should only be using the light coming through the lens and not any light that comes through the eyepiece.
Keeping track of that tiny viewfinder cover isn't so easy. I also always carry a small microfiber cleaning cloth in my pocket that I can use to do a quick wipe of my lens. I just drape that over the viewfinder. Works great.

Indeed they do, but other Nikon DSLRs regardless of how they are classified, and regardless of there use by pro's or otherwise DO have viewfinders, and lenses, and most of the other pro level gizmos. The D7000 is in fairness heading that way, all be it not as a full frame. So why not an integral viewfinder shutter. I feel its a concept that both Nikon and Canon need to consider. As said my 1970s A1 had it so why not. Why go cheap on something that seems fairly basic, if you get my drift.
