Not just book writers, but the tv series as well. I mean, this is a show where Roddenberry had an omnipresent camera on the bridge of Pike's ship when they replayed events from the first pilot and Kirk was on trial. So, no one during TNG, even considering technology at the time, thought it would make sense to have Data's eyes replay what he saw as a point of view? There were never moments when it was said Data was super zooming in with his eyes, or had night vision, etc, that I ever recall. Missed opportunities. And if I were writing stories, Id ADD these abilities because it only makes sense for Data to have them.
