"D7K view finder"


San carlos, US
          

I used to have a d70. I remember looking through the viewfinder to be like looking through a tunnel. My D200 is much better in that sense. Does the D7K have the same as the old D70?

The D7000 VF has the same magnification as the D200, except nearly 100% coverage instead of 95%. That means the image should appear the same size as with the D200, but you'll get to see all of it.

So the D7k has the same VF as the D300s?

Seems that way. At least, the specs are the same. Until we can peer through the eyepiece, that's all we can go on.

Just want to point out that one needs to be careful when you look at these specs. The D3, D3s and D3X have a magnification of .70x and the D700 actually comes in at .72X. Now we all know that those viewfinders are NOT smaller than the D300 or D7000. This is due to the crop factor and if you want to compare between the two formats, a little math is called for.

D3/s/x - .70/1.0 = .70
D700 - .72/1.0 = .72
D7000 - .95/1.5 = .633
D90/D300 - .94/1.5 = .626

To be even more accurate, you need to consider the 95% coverage of the D700 and the 96% coverage of the D90:

D700 - .72 x .95 = .684
D90 - .626 x .96 = .600

That's true, but since both cameras the OP asked about are DX, it doesn't apply to his question. Although if you want to be more precise about it, not all DX cameras have the same size sensor. The crop factors and resulting values (using your calculation) for some of the DX models discussed are:

D70: 1.51 (.497)
D90: 1.53 (.621)
D200: 1.53 (.621)
D7000: 1.56 (.609)
