Works well but watch the rubber ring
from N London

Comments about Nikon DK-17M Magnifying Eyepiece:
Works well, improves viewfinder image.Was concerned as I wear glasses that I would not get to view the whole finder, not the case works perfectly The one big problem is the rubber surround keeps dropping off on both that I own, infact I have now lost one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

An excellent product to help compose you
This device increases the viewfinder magnification to allow you to see the composition clearly. Simple to fit, also easy to revert to the standard eyepiece. I wear glasses and read that some people found it harder to read the information at the bottom of the viewfinder. While this is true, changing your view to see this is quick and easy and once you are happy with your settings you can use the extra magnification to better focus and compose your photos. Highly recommended.
Benefits manual focus
from South Wales
Fitted it to my D810 which I frequently use with older AI/AI-s manual focus lenses. Simply shut the eyepiece blind and swap.It makes a big difference to fine focusing with lenses faster than f2.8. It's still not enough for lenses faster than f1.8 as the focusing screen isn't configured to suit it. There can be some difficulty seeing the extreme corners if you wear glasses or don't hold the camera close to your eye. One benefit is that I find it more comfortable to use as I don't end up pressing my face/nose up against the screen as much.I tried it with the DK-19, but found that the combination sticks out too far, so I put the DK-19 on to my F5.
Larger than life...
from Sunny Sheffield
This is the first one one of these devices that I've bought. Although it does make a small difference it certainly helps.
A worthwhile investment.
If you hanker after the larger viewfinders of yesteryear than this accessory helps you get close. Spectical wearers be aware that the very corners of the viewfinder can be "cut off" from your field of view. I have a number of old AIS lenses that I focus manually, this accessory helps make focusing easier.
the best upgrade for very little money
About Me Casual user, Getting started
I had heard some good things about this product and thought i would take the plunge and try it out for myself. All i can say is 'what a difference'! It should come as standard on all slrs. The image through the view finder is clearer and certainly easier to manually focus on the target as the image presented to you is larger. Overall im really happy with this. The only con was installation was a bit fiddly.
A huge plus
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast, Semi Pro
I read some good reviews of these magnifying eyepieces and just had to try them. I bought two, one for each of my D700 and D800's. I ordered at the same time two DK-19 eyecups. They were very easy to fit, even though there are a lot of reviews that say the opposite. Follow Nikons instructions and there are no problems.I have found this combination a great success, and am only sorry I haven't discovered them earlier. There is not a huge magnification, but enough to be noticed and benefit from. I would recommend the DK-17M and DK-19 combo, as the eyecup really cuts out all distracting light and helps protect the viewfinder when your camera is not in use.
DK-M magnifying Eyepeice
from South west
I shoot mostly wedding and portraits on a Nikon D4, I bought this eye piece as I noticed that some of my shots were not focused dead on especially when using very shallow depth of field, this eye piece is superb and easy to fitThe magnification is only slight but makes a huge difference. Fully recommend this item
A little extra magnifiaction
About Me Professional
A well made and securely fitting design, which has provided a little extra magnification to the viewfinder image of my D800e. It does 'vignette' the displays a tiny bit, but they are still perfectly usable by moving your eye ever so slightly.The only con is that it sticks out a bit, especially with my DK-19 eyecup, so can catch on your bag / case, but just a minor niggle.

Feels like more than 1.2x
from Kingdom of Kerry Ireland
1.2x hardly seems worthwhile but the magnification seems much more in practice.I'd strongly recommend this, I use it with the rubber eyecup on my d800e
