Re: Manual focus-how easy?

I would have thought Nikon would have decided interchangable focus screens was a good idea. What about all those specialist applications? I seem to remember Olympus had about 13 different screens. Is it all live view/auto focus now, or is it a case of paying a specialist to fit a custom screen.

I think (as I'm in the UK) that I will have to get by with the screen as supplied, and get used to it.

Incidentally is it easier to focus a short lens or a long one in manual as things stand. I seem to remember on a Mamiya RB67 I had back in the day, it was far trickier to get spot on with a long lens on a matte screen.
