Yep, that finder is part of the lens. It's a so called "dog-leg" reflex finder for use on non-reflex cameras such as the Bolex H16 and a whole load of others. My guess is that it is an old Angenieux with a C mount if I am not mistaken. Quite common out there!

Cheers, Dave

Maybe you can find it used somewhere like fleaBay, or a used camera merchant. Usually they came with the lens, otherwise it would be much like buying a car without wheels . . .
