Zacuto Z-Finder Question

This is probably a dumb question.

Most of the sales collateral for the Z-finder shows people focusing using their right eye. I use my left eye when looking through a viewfinder.

Does the eye cup for the Z-finder rotate so that left-eye shooters can be accomodated? I assume that it does, but I want to be sure. Thanks!

Thanks for the quick heads-up. I appreciate it!

Now I just need to get one. ;^)

Which leads to my next question. Where is the best place to source them?

They are out of stock at B&H, and the website isn't even taking orders for them?

A couple of days ago I looked throughout the country for one and there were none and it seemed they were 1-2 weeks backordered. I wound up getting a good deal at Abel CineTech and they were very helpful and professional. They'll ship to me when it gets in.

Wow, from the information at the Zacuto website, it looks like this may not be available until near the end of the year!
