Changing Focus Screens on a 5d2 - ?
May 20, 2009

I bought one of those Chinese split screens over eBay to try for precise focusing on my 5d2. It came with some 'condoms' for my fingers and two tweezers, one plastic and one metal.

There are no instructions for R&R of the screens. It looks to me as if I move the black retainer aside and then I'm hoping the old screen will drop out. However, being a very conservative step by step sort of guy, I'd like to know if anybody has published on the Web (with pix, I hope) how to get the screens in and out of a 5d.

As soon as I can get the new screen in, I'll be happy to publish a review of my feeling on how well it worked but I'm not willing to chance damaging my camera or putting it out of commission unless I feel sure I can do the job properly.

Any suggestions, step by steps or links very welcome.
