It prevents extraneous light coming into the viewfinder from the rear, altering exposure.
It provides an additional point of contact for steadier shooting when hand-holding and even when from a tripod.
It allows you to concentrate on your composition.
Just make sure you use the metallic ring to instal it to prevent it from falling off. Follow the instructions included.

Yes, this works with my D700. It's indispensable. It shield your eye from stray light from becoming a distraction. And lets you focus on photography.
The down side is that the viewfinder glass is more prone to fogging up.

It doesn't say it here but this eyepiece does work on a D700. I wrote Nikon's tech support about it and they said they would post the information, they never did. It's easy to install and I have had no problems with it. If you have a D700 and were wondering if this will work on it, it does, buy it.

I loved the eyecup but every time I turned around it was gone. The camera would brush against my body and knock it off, or in and out of the bag would knock it off. Now it's gone and I can't find it. In the woods somewhere.
