Do you use a split-image screen?

Can you recommend for K5? Best place to purchase?

I have a split screen in my K-7. Its from KatzEye

http://www.katzeyeoptics.com/cat--Pentax-DSLRs--cat_pentax.html

I both like it and dislike it.

I really like the central split screen. Its fantastic.

But - I dislike the micro prism collar. It is too bright.

And - I dislike the huge circular matte area - it disturbs the composition.

Moreover, the original Pentax screens are smoother and more high tech than KatzEye.

So - give me a Pentax quality screen with a split image in the middle. Hmmmm .... anyone?
