Optical Viewfinders Sizes Compaired (Nikon D2, D200, D3, D300, D700)

I have been very intrested in why Nikon uses different styles of viewfinders between there cameras like the comparison of the D200 and D2x, The D200 has a smaller viewfinder compaired to the D2x.

Even though at the time they were both classed as a professional cameras. I always liked the D2x viewfinder over the D200's the only problem was I did not always want to carry a massive camera all the time, That is why I like the D700, A small camera with the high-end viewfinder.

The same applies to the D300 users to the D3.

D200 - 0.94 Magnification 95% Coverage (DX)

D700 - 0.72 Magnification 95% Coverage (FX)

D2x - 0.86 Magnificatiob 100% Coverage (DX)

Tell me what you think.
