    Can someone tell me what eye cup they use on there D2x or D2hs as my manual says DK-19 but i havent even seen it listed?

    The DK-2 is the one i have seen, as i also need the anti fog eye piece as well.

    Thanks

    The DK-2 will fit on the D2X viewfinder without any modification. Just follow the instructions come with the DK-2.

    I use DK-2 and keep spares.
    Never had to use a spare.

    Will be installing DK-17M using existing DK-2 tomorrow.

  11. DK-17M with the DK-19 eyecup works much better than with the DK-2. The hole in the DK-19 is a smaller diameter and if you follow the instructions that come with the DK-19 eyecup it works perfectly with the DK-17M and you get the full depth of the eyecup. When you use it with the DK-2 eyecup you have to leave the rubber ring around the eyepiect so the eyecup won't easily pull over it, and while this does work, the eyecup depth is significantly reduced. DK-19 and DK17M together work very well if you follow the Nikon instructions.

    This is what i bought, a DK-19 rubber eyecup as this is the one Nikon recommends, i also bought a DK-17A Anti Fog eye piece, which may be useful for my sports work.

    Cheers
