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.
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.
