As the ongoing saga of the Nikon D5 leaks continue, we now have several new images leaked out. Notably, the viewfinder eyecup is removable and there is a blackout switch to cover the optical viewfinder (presumably to eliminate light leaks during long exposures).
More photos below.

Isn’t this interesting? While passionate amateurs chase the elusive maximum pixel count, this cam – clearly targeting pros – has 20MP – way down from the D810 and trailing in the Canon EOS 5DS’s dust!
There’s plenty of stuff out there, suggesting bigger pixels carry more information and produce a richer image with more color and contrast. I look forward to the release, and the reviews. I suspect a lot of serious photographers will regard this offering from Nikon as a real winner.
One question – I make use of several manual focus lenses, and I’ve modified my Nikon by installing a magnifying lens on the eyepiece of the viewfinder. Absent the auto focus facilities of these digital cams, and the split image focus of the viewfinders of my earlier SLRs, I find this is a great help when a tripod and life view focusing is out of the question. Looking at these photos of the view finder on the D5, I am not sure if this is possible with this cam.

Looks like the same DK-17 eyepiece to my eyes, just a different way of mounting it to the body like the D3 & D4.
