Hi All,

I tried to fit the DR5 onto the D700 and it does not fit. The thread on the DR5 is too small for the opening on the D700. I got this used, so I am assuming there is something critical missing, any idea what it is (an adapter or something I guess), and if it is possible to buy one?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rich,

Is the threaded part on your DR-5 silver or black? If it's silver then you are missing the adapter ring that's supposed to come with it. On mine, the black adapter ring screws onto the silver fixed thread making it bigger.

Sorry, I don't have a D700 to try it on...but it fits the D2X with the black adapter.

Hi Greg, it is silver,I think the part I need to get for it is the DK018 eyepiece adapter. It is here at B&H Does this look like it???
