Help finding Canon F-1 Diopter

I'm in need of a +1 or +1.5 diopter of the Canon "R" or round type to fit my F-1.

Does anyone know where to find one or know if some other maker's diopter will fit the F-1?

I prefer shooting with the SX-70. Don't much care to use flash or AF, so all that stuff on top is a waste.
On the other hand, access to 600 iso film vs 100 iso can be a very good thing.
No surprise...

I've long used FP4 in 120. I'm satisfied with the results.

Fuji Acros costs only about 2/3rds what FP4 costs. Seems worth trying.

Any opinions on Acros vs FP4?
