Not worth the Money

I purchased one and having to wear glasses does not help at all. To use it had to remove specs and still found that the View Hole was too small. A BIG LET DOWN

DK-21M on D7000

This eyepiece magnifies what you see by a factor of 1.17x. Meaning, whatever you see in the viewfinder will be magnified by 17%. Unfortunately, the DK-21M viewing hole is a lot SMALLER than the original viewfinder which I find strange because the reason people buy this is to get a bigger, better , crisper and an unobstructed view of the image being composed , eg. like on a D700 upwards.

Nice zoom

By

from Sacramento, CA  -  Semi-Professional

Purchased this mainly to aid in manual focus. Viewfinder magnified about x1.25 which helps alot if you don't want to use live view.

Very Good Magnifier for Nikon D600

By

from Fairfield County, CT  -  Semi-Professional

No longer need eyeglasses for shooting...this works very well when optimized by D600 eyepiece diaopter adjustment. Whole frame and shooting info is more visible. Only improvement would be slightly larger eye cup. Does the job and you'll never know its there!

Good enough

By

from Undisclosed

PROS: Bigger image. You can read the data in the viewfinder on baseline CONS: Little eyepiece glass so you need to put your eye very close. Poor eyepiece ergonomic design, it can be fall out.

It also fits the D5100

By

from Undisclosed

I just put this eyepiece on my D5100, and though it does not make a huge difference, it is significant enough to make it well worth the few dollars it costs, and a very welcome upgrade to my D5100. It really helps to focus on long zoom shots. It stands about 1/4 inch further back than the rubber eyepiece that comes on the camera, which is also better; it gets your face off of the monitor screen. And in contrast to what I've read on some reviews from other websites, it does not take away from the area of view of the viewfinder; at least not on the D5100. I can easily see the entire rectangle, and what's inside it, better than without it. It is now a permanent part of my D5100; I will never take it off!!!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAMIAN V  I did not care for this, it cuts out too much of the viewable area of the viewfinder. Not helpful. But I wear glasses, so maybe that's the bigger problem.
Roger M  Will it work on a D5000-5300? There has to be room at bottom to allow the swivel screen to move
Obi O  Yes it work with D5000 - D5300 and all DX body, D600, D610.
Phillip J  just purchased a DK-20c +.5 and work perfectly except I am surprised it didn't come with a rubber protector Cup your item NKDP05N I tried to remove the rubber piece off of the DK-20 eyepiece that comes standard. Its glued and it wont slide over the DK20-C DPTR. I can adjust the focus marks perfectly with corrector on. But worry about the light getting and affecting the set up?
CHRIS M  your correct, the magnifying eyepiece doesn't allow the installation of the rubber protector over it, makes it a bit odd, but that's the way it was designed. And why I didn't like it
Phillip J  Wish I could find the rubber cup to slide on. If I am going to see to Focus I have no choice.
