    This is a good eyecup, it really helps you focus on the subject without distracting light. It's easier to use if you don't wear eyeglasses, (this applies to all eyecups), because the separation between your glasses and eye will still allow stray light to enter anyway. If you kind of press your eye into it it definitely helps cut down a lot, though, so it's not a complete waste. This also is fully compatible with Nikon's diopters because the eyecup fits around it.

    The major downside, at least on the FE2 which I own, is that once attached you really can't easily pull your notes or film info from the memo holder at the back because the eyecup covers part of that. On the other hand, the eyecup is pretty easy to remove so it's not really a deal breaker. Just keep it in mind.

    I got this (along with the adapter and eyepiece) for my D70s. I wear glasses, and therefore can't press my eye as close to the viewfinder. That extra distance causes the round opening of the eyepiece/eyecup to vignette the viewfinder slightly. Not a huge deal, but since glasses prevent it from forming a closed seal around my eye, I don't think it minimizes stray light that much better than the stock rectangular eyecup either, which makes this not of much use to anyone who wears glasses.

    I'd give it five stars for anyone who doesn't wear glasses, however.

          Couldn't figure out how to get it on the back of my FM2 right away. (Unscrew the viewfinder protector first, set the eye cup then screw the protector back on.)

          With glasses I found that the whole viewfinder was not visible. Perhaps 85% at most.

          Still the quality of the cup is good and it does an excellent job of blocking stray light.

                  I really wanted an eyecup for my Nikon D7000. I read somewhere I could get 3 Nikon parts and put it together. Voila, it works! The other 2 parts that complete it are below:

                  Finder Eyepiece for FM, FE & FA Series
                  DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter for Select SLR

                        The DK-3 Rubber Eyecup is very useful to block out parasite light reaching the viewfinder from behind. Once attached to your Nikon body, it reduces 99.99% the light passing through the viewfinder from behind (only light reaching your eye is through the lens).
                        The biggest con for this product is the sensitive rubber from witch it's made of. I managed to break mine in 30 seconds after i put my hands on and i know how to handle photo equipments... so my hint is to be careful when attaching it to the body.

                                This is a standard Nikon high quality piece. I adapted it for use on a D90 by mating it with the Nikon DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter with a few drops of glue. Blocks all light. Works perfectly. At its lowest point just covers 3-4mm of the LCD which is easily seen by simply tilting the camera.

                                      I purchased the DK-3 Rubber Eyecup after reading the reviews and I have to say that it really makes a difference. I like the way it feels and images in the viewfinder are brighter, because there is less light entering from the sides.

                                            I picked this up for my D7000 because Moose Peterson recommends using a rubber eyecup to dampen vibrations from your face (seriously). Although it takes some getting used to, I'm glad I bought it. If you are interested in this eyecup, you must also buy the EYEPIECE ADAPT f/N2-4-5-6000 SER/FM10 and the NIEPFM2 Finder Eyepiece for FM, FE & FA Series and put them all together for it to work. I prefer this eyecup to the DK-21M, which makes the corners blurry and obscures the info on the bottom of the viewfinder.

                                              Great addition to help give a view with no light leaking in. But with glasses it is a pain.

                                              You need to order item number "NIEPAN6006 to receive DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter for Select SLR" to use the eyecup with a D300s

                                                    The eyecup helps protect the sensors from light leaks behind them and affecting the light reading. You need to order item number "NIEPAN6006 to receive DK-22 Eyepiece Adapter for Select SLR" to use the eyecup with a D300s.

                                                      I wear glasses, this doesn't really help me. I thought it would help cut down stray light and make looking through the viewfinder easier and clearer, but it actually contributes little or nothing.

                                                      The stray light problem still exists because light seeps in through the edge of my glasses (though the distance between the frames and my eye). There's no getting around that.

                                                      I guess this becomes an accessory that looks nice on the camera, but ultimately does nothing for me. The build quality is very nice though, and if you don't wear glasses it makes things work a lot easier.

                                                      Unfortunately, despite the built-in diopter on the D3, I have to keep my glasses on at all times for other tasks and it would be annoying to take them off to look through the viewfinder each time, so I'm pretty much stuck.
