The Nikon DK-17M Eyepiece a joy added to

I got a chance to see through one of these in someone else's D700 & saw immediately the benefit. I ordered one & put it on mine. It remains & will remain on it. It makes the already large viewfinder larger & framing is even easier now. I especially like the fact that my face now is a little away from the camera body - it;s just enough so that my cheek does not hit the back lcd screen. I'm glad I made this addition to my D700. I see no reason to complain about anything. Excellent.

glasses are taboo

If you shoot without eyeglasses this is a great improvement on the Nikon viewfinder, otherwise it will greatly reduce your angle of view.

Magnifying eyepiece

By

I bought this because I wear glasses and I thought if I used this, I wouldn't have to wear my glasses. It does help to make things more in focus without wearing my glasses and with a little adjustment of the diopter, it is pretty good.

Almost as big as 100% mag

By

 -  Professional

I installed these in all three of my cameras: D3s, D3, and D700. Initially I purchased only one but I loved the mag. Visually it appears to be almost as big as 100% mag--just like looking in a hole with a 50mm. Cons: It's very clear towards the center area but it's a bit distorted/unsharp on the sides. I got used to that. You either live with it or you don't. I think users are 50/50 on that.

Exactly what I was looking for!

I use Zeiss on my D800 and this magnifying eyepiece helps nail manual focus. Great alternative to a focusing screen.

Great Helpful Item D700 AND Pentax 67!

By

 -  Semi-Pro

This has just enough magnification that it helps. Its not a huge difference for the price though, My vision is progressively getting worse and worse as I get older and the DK-17M makes me feel normal. I only wish nikon made higher powered magnifiers. Another great bonus is that it fits great on the Pentax 6X7 (67)! If you use this with a DK-19 Cup on the P67, you just have to replace the sheath that secures the cup ring in place with a couple of O-Rings, otherwise the DK-19 pops right off, and you're out $8 bucks (which I learned the hard way).

Great for macro work

By

 -  Professional

It makes focusing easier in macro photography. However it reduces the field of view in the viewfinder of my Nikon D700 making it not useful for other kind of photography.

It actually makes a difference.

By

 -  Professional

It actually makes a difference. It restores my D1X's smallish viewfinder to more traditional Nikon standards. Works beautifully along with a DK19 rubber eyecup.

Does the job and now do not have to shift back and forth with glasses, what a pain that was... :-)
