p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D5 & D500 eyepiece removal?


I'm trying to give a test run with my TT Hydrophobia. When I try to unscrew the eyepiece on the D5 and D500,they both only unscrew about 1/4 turn and stop. I didn't see anything in the manual. How do these come out? Googling I see an old Hoodman video for the D3 and it unscrews right out. I also found a preproduction sample of the D5 and it looks like it might lift up. I don't want to force anything and have a silly repair on my hands

Also, is the covering on the viewfinder on each glass or plastic? I'm curious for cleaning. I like Pancro but I think it eats plastic.


Thanks

The VF shutter lever serves as a lock for the rotating eyepiece. The eyepiece is glass: I swapped mine for a -2 diopter version.

Ahhh... I didn't try that. Thanks.

On the eyepiece being glass, is that for the D5, D500 or both?
