Nikon DK-17C Overview

The Nikon DK-17C +1.0 Correction Eyepiece is a replacement eyepiece for select Nikon SLR and DSLR cameras. This eyepiece helps to compensate for farsighted 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.

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.

Nikon DK-17C Reviews

viewfinder focus

By Philip
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-07-30

I could not acquire sharp focus in the viewfinder of my Nikon D500 either with autofocus or manual focus. Nikon recommended I replace the original eyepiece lens (DK-17) with this correction eyepiece which gives a different range of diopter adjustment. 100% successful solution to the problem! Now the image I see in the viewfinder is sharp and clear. There are several different models of this eyepiece lens based on whether you are near-sighted or farsighted and how much correction you may need; so I recommend you contact Nikon tech support so they can assist you with making the proper choice. B&H had a great price and cheap but fast shipping.

Running out of (+) dioper adjustment on my D810 I ordered the DK-17C. I did exactly what I had hoped. I was able to dial back my diopter adjustment(-) three clicks and everything in the view finder was sharp again, with room to spare. The B&H price was less than at Nikon(the only other place I was able to find the item)and the shipping was free. All pros with no cons to report.

With my eyes the Nikon diopters at full scale + are barely fine I bought it to have a better adjustment. I wonder why Nikon makes diopters from -3 to +1. With this they will go from -2 to +2 treating all people with eye imparity the same.

Works perfect with Nikon D800

When working insects in the field, I'd become completely reliant on the camera's ability to follow focus. Quick and easy to attach, the eyepiece now allows me focus for myself. Choice is good.

Unfortunately, I dont see as well as I once did and have been having a hard time telling if my subject was in focus. Well, this little add on took care of my issue. Things are clear as a bell through my viewfinder now. Huge difference made by such a small item.

Corrects for lack of adjustment range in D500

By Curt
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2016-05-15

Minus a star as should be part of camera's capabilities to start with. For some reason, Nikon changed the diaopter adjustment range on the D500. As a result, the proper adjustment for me was just beyond one end of the maximum range. This puts me cak in the middle with a bit of buffer to adjust either way.

A waste of $$$$

Showed up with no instructions. Just unscrew the old eyepiece, right? Wrong! If you don't have the eyepiece shutter closed the eyepiece will lock up. Now it's stuck!!!!!! So it would be a hardship for Nikon to provide this information in the package?!?!?!
