I am in love with it.

What-
DK-17M is a Magnifying Eyepiece for Nikon D2H(s), D2X(s) F6, D3 and D3X.(the eyepiece will mount to Nikon cameras that accept the round screw-on eyepieces) sry but it only available for flagship models.
Other camera like D200/D300 can buy something call Nikon DK-21M

Why-Quoted
"The DK-17M gives you the feel of the full-frame view on a DX sized Dslr camera. It also helps problems associated with difficult viewing through a helmet, goggles etc. A must have item, when you have tried it once there is no way back. As you can see in the picture below, the eyepiece does stand out a bit compared to the stock one. I actually really like that, as my nose is less squeezed against the LCD screen." from MomentCorp.

Price- you can find it anywhere on Adorama/B&H...etc.. and dont forget to buy it through our Camera Lab links!
it's retail prices is about $37-$45

Pros
-It cost $40 to get that fullframe feeling. if u are using D2 series model
-you dont have to press your face and squeeze your nose into the eyepiece to frame the picture....
-Once u tried it on, there is no way back.

Cons
-Easy to lose the rubber gasket on it
(i took my F3 eyepiece rubber gasket to and switched to DK-17M, it's tighter and feels more comfortable)
-a little pricey

there are also the DK-19 to go with, but i havn't bought one yet... will get it soon...
