It has to fit, the D700 comes with the DK-17 and the 17 m is the same only with a magnifier.

Question

How would I go on fitting this accessory onto my D5100? Any adapters, anything?

I need a larger magnification than the DK-21M, and also, the DK-21M doesn't work well while using glasses, which I always need to wear. Also. would I still be able to put a -3.0 diopter adjustment accessory with this? Thanks!

hi
the eyepiece should screw into the same place your original rubber eyepiece is, unscrew it and screw new one in its place...
not sure about the "diopter adj. accs", you will still be able to make diopter adjustments...

Question

Is the viewfinder coverage the same?

What I want to know is when this magnifying eyepiece is added and you achieve the 1.2x magnification, do you still retain 100% viewfinder coverage or does it somehow crop the edges to be less than 100%? What I want to ensure is that I still see what I'm going to get, but have a large viewfinder image for ease of manual focus. Thanks

The only round rubber eyecup for the D7000 is the DG-2 eyepiece magnifier which must be used with the DK-22 adapter. There are no other similar eyecups.

Question

How to uninstall the DK-17M from the D-800?

I try to rotate the DK-17M and it moves a little bit but it stops abruptly and I can not remove it. I need to uninstall the DK-17M to use a DG-2.
Is there any screw or some thing that stops the DK-17M to go out?

Question

Using the DK-17M Magnifying Eyepiece

I'm a photographer with advanced diabetic retinopathy, as a result of which, I've had extensive laser surgery to the back of my eyes. The effect of this is that I have great difficulty in seeing small objects. I'm wondering has anyone tried this Nikon eyepiece and can it assist in magnifying the viewing screen to the extent a photographer with bad eyesight may be able to functionally operate a digital SLR.
Many thanks for any help with this.

Question

Is the DK-17M a rotatable zoom type adjustable Dioptric? Will it fit, and work on a Nikon F3HP?

I have looked high, and low for a very long time for a +0.5 diopter for my Nikon F3HP. There's everything but the +0.5. The +0.5 is perfect for my Nikon FM3a. The +1.0 for the F3 is too much.
