    The "window covering" on the top of the prism head of my Nikon N90s
    just went missing, so I have a "hole" in the top of the prism housing.
    Is this something I should get replaced right away? Obviously I
    should not use the camera in the rain with the window cover missing,
    but is it OK to use the camera otherwise?

    Is this going to be an expensive repair, because the entire body will
    need to be disassembled? Or, is this an excuse to go out and get a
    used F5 on ebay for about $600? :)

    In the mean time, just put a piece of translucent tape over it. This will
    let in the light as the plastic window did and keep the dust out. If this
    looks insufferably tacky to you, get it replaced eventually.

    Tacky? Only if the tape doesn't stick. (I just couldn't resist that
    one, so I didn't.) It's a great solution that requires zero time at
    the repair shop.
