The Nikon DK-17C -3.0 Correction Eyepiece is a replacement eyepiece for select Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras. This eyepiece helps to compensate for nearsighted vision. Made from soft and durable rubber, the surface of this DK-17C Correction Eyepiece provides a comfortable surface for the area around your eye while framing a subject through the camera's viewfinder. It also serves to block unwanted and potentially distracting light from entering the viewfinder. The DK-17C -3.0 Correction Eyepiece mounts easily and securely to the viewfinder and is compatible with select Nikon cameras.

To determine which Nikon diopter is best suited for you, it is recommended to consult your eye care professional. Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras without built-in adjustable eyepiece correction have a base diopter value of -1. -1 is considered the optimum starting point for the majority of SLR or DSLR users with normal vision. No combination of that -1 base value and a diopter's value is required to arrive at the final desired value. In other words, if you require a diopter of +2, simply add a +2 diopter to your camera.

Compatible With:
Df, D810, D800, D800E, D700, D4, D4s, D3-series, D2-series, F6

      Comments about Nikon DK-17C -3 Diopter for D3, D2-Series, D700 & F6 Cameras:

      Has my sight is not too good, the basic dioptric correction in my Nikon D4 was not sufficient. the DK17C allowed me to increase that correction and have an accurate view of my subject through the viewfinder.
      An essential accessory for short sighted people in my opinion.

        I have not yet put this on my new D800, but I've used Nikon diopters in the past on other Nikon bodies and they're superb.

            Comments about Nikon DK-17C -3 Diopter for D3, D2-Series, D700 & F6 Cameras:

            When you correct the diopters in the camera wheel, the viewfinder zooms. And if you use the DK-17M (+DK-19), that magnifies 20%, the frame may be too large to see it entirely. So this helps me in that situation.

              Comments about Nikon DK-17C -3 Diopter for D3, D2-Series, D700 & F6 Cameras:

              I had to buy one of these when I knocked my D3 over on its tripod last August (2008). Talk about a nightmare situation...[...] It took all of about 3 seconds to re-attach it, and I am back up and running! The only con is that it is fairly expensive for what it is. But what can you expect?
