I've found a magnifying eyepiece to be a great aid for manual lenses, close-up photography, or other situations where precise focusing is vital. The Nikon (round) magnifying eyepiece DK-17M is fantastic for this, but doesn't fit the (square) eyepiece holders of prosumer bodies like the D750 or D7000 series. There are a number of bodges described on the web to fit the round eyepiece into the square holder but they are cumbersome. I have somewhat accidentally found a very simple way to fit the DK-17M (or any other round eyepiece like the DK-17 or DK-17A) onto my D750. It came about when I ordered a China-made copy of the Nikon DK-22 eyepiece off Ebay. The authentic Nikon DK-22 fits the square D750 holder, but does NOT fit the round DK-17M. However, I found to my surprise that the Chinese copy directly fits the DK-17M to my D750 body. Result - a one-step simple route to this very useful conversion! Needless to say, I quickly ordered a few more of the Chinese DK-22 copies (about £4 for 3 pieces), and have been able to fit the Nikon "pro" range of round eyepieces and rubber hoods to all my prosumer bodies. If anyone else is interested - the Ebay UK seller is "Poppins1910" and the shop is "MaryPoppins1910". But please do note that I can't guarantee that any DK-22 copy you buy will fit the DK-17M directly - I was certainly surprised when mine did! It may well have been a one-off.
Good morning gents, Following on from my recent acquisition of a Nikon D7100 and a Tokina 11-16 2.8 lens I have to say I'm really disappointed with the performance of this camera vs my Nikon D3100. I have two lenses: Nikkor 18-105 5.5/5.6 ED VR and the Tokina 11-16 2.8, Every picture from the D7100 is blurry apart from the immediate centre and the chromatic aberration is horrendous! The D3100 and Nikkor 18-105 gave pretty good results without any CA and was sharp from centre to edge, with the D7100 it is like using a 1.3 Mp phone regardless of aperture or focal length, I usually shoot in Aperture priority, matrix metering, and centre focus and the camera is focusing dead centre the images are crap. I have tried setting up fine focus adjustment on the Tokina as it was front focusing, that has improved things but again with both lenses anything outside of the centre of the picture is a complete mess.... I have cleaned the sensor with a decent sensor cleaning swab kit but nothing has improved. Do you think its faulty? It was brand new, boxed with all accessories.. I always use a tripod... Many thanks, Mark
