Re: Canon sells the original 20D matte screen for 4,05 Euros + VAT

The F3 screen is thicker than the FE/FA screens.

I'm thinking about picking up a milling machine that can handle cutting focusing screen with more precise specs from existing Nikon screens.

I'm wondering if its worth the cost. Its about $1000 USD and its computer controller much like a computer controlled engraving machine that you see at malls.

Regards,

Steve

I also installed the Contax FU4 screen but I found it a little too
dark so I went for the Nikon FE K2 screen. The screen is much
brighter and the microprism is also larger.

It really fits perfectly? A German guy tried the F3 K screen and
got front focus with it, so he had to remove 0,3mm of the edge to
lower it towards the Prism.
