Below are our viewfinder accuracy test results for the Nikon D5600.

Viewfinder Test Results

About average coverage accuracy from the optical viewfinder. Excellent accuracy from the LCD in Live View mode.

60mm, Optical
60mm, Live View LCD

The Nikon D5600's optical viewfinder yielded about 95 percent coverage with our reference Nikkor 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. This is average for its class and meets Nikon's specification, however the viewfinder image is offset and slightly tilted compared to the imaging sensor, which unfortunately is not that uncommon in consumer DSLRs. In Live View mode, the Nikon D5600's LCD showed very close to 100%, which is excellent.
