I had to buy one of these when I knocked my D3 over on its tripod last August (2008). Talk about a nightmare situation...

Anyway, I had to replace the eyepiece that shipped with the camera. This was perfect - the exact replacement that shipped when I bought the D3. It took all of about 3 seconds to re-attach it, and I am back up and running!

DK-17 Finder Eyepiece by Nikon review

I have replaced my eyepiece about once per year or so as it scratches easily. The anti-fog eyepiece needs to be replaced more often.

    Comments about DK-17 Eyepiece for Select Nikon Cameras:

    I've tried other eyepieces, but prefer this standard one. I always keep a spare on hand. Not likely to come off, but using a Rt. Angle finder I can get clumsy.

                  This eyepiece also works for the Df. Not much ot say about an eyepiece. But the good thing is that if one gets scratched or messed up, you just toss it and screw on a new one.

                      Nothing worse than being overseas, or on location and having your eyepiece come loose, usually happens
                      while your running/walking and is stepped on shortly after it falls to the ground! I always keep an extra
                      in my camera case.

                      The dk17 is a tiny eye peice that screws onto my nikon d800, a really cheap, pain in the butt part to find at any store but b&h. Staffers found it for me immediately and my sales rep gave me the brief history of the birth and decelopment of my camera. New yorkers time is valuable and the store respects that.

                              I lost my original Eyepiece, So I had to order one from B&H - B&H Rep knew exactly what I wanted. I got it in Nikon Packaging ( It hough I was going to get from 3rd Party). Took me 10 seconds to install and its as original as it gets.
                              The only things is that it is expensive for what it is.

                                        I have replaced my eyepiece about once per year or so as it scratches easily. The anti-fog eyepiece needs to be replaced more often.

                                                  A bit expensive for plastic and a faux glass but whatcha gonna do when you lose your eyepiece.

                                                      Used in conjunction with the following parts: DK-19 and DK-22, for a better eyecup in D200. DK-19 must be filed down to make DK-17 fit in it.
