Nikon Rubber Eyecup DK-2

Highly recommended for photographer to invest into an eyecup. Its primary function is to prevent stray light from entering the viewfinder from the rear and allows eyeglass wearers to use the Nikon F4 without fear of scratching glasses. But most often, for extended long hours shooting, it is less stressful to eyestrain and permits you to cencentrate more.

The DK-2 is actually improved from the DK-4. It has added a metal ring to locked the rubber eyecup securely in place without worrying the eyecup dropping off. A good news is, the DK-2 was first introduced for the Nikon F3HP (High-Eyepoint finder and this accessory has been around for the last 20 years and many photo retailers may still be keeping this handy accessory. Yes, the DK-2 is applicable both to the subsequent Nikon F4's DP-20 as well as the Nikon F5 (DP-30) multi-meters finders.

Note: for non-HP eye level finder of Nikon F3 and the F3AF's DX-1 finder, you should use the DK-4 (the DK-4 is very poorly designed and often it drops off from the eyepiece).
