First remove the existing rubber eyecup from the Df by grasping it lightly between your thumb and finger and rotating it counter-clockwise. Then follow the instructions shown on the following page: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an... .
Please disregard the parts of these instructions that refer to an eyepiece shutter/lock since the Df does not have these features.
Is it possible to mount this eye cup after I install DK-17m magnifier on d800?
I am buying the Nikon D800 and thinking of mounting the DK-17m 1.2x magnifying eyepiece on it. I would like to use this on top of that.

on DK-19 Rubber Eyecup

I don't have direct experience with this item, but I have changed out the DK-17 on my D700, and it simply screws in and out of the camera. If you replace it with a magnifier, the only difference will be in the glass, and the overall design is identical. This eyecup is just a piece of rubber that stretches to fit around the eyepiece. It fits all of the FX cameras with round viewfinders.
