Poll: ME-1 Eyecup x Dandelion Chip x Focusing Screen x FW 1.4

I'm having a really hard time trying to focus my Zuiko OM 50mm @ F1.4

Since all these alternatives (except for 4) would cost me about the same, around 50€, I'm interested in knowing which roads have you traveled and which road would you take now.

1 - Olympus ME-1 Eyecup

Since my viewfinder front focuses by little over 1 cm, I'm not really that convinced about it.

2 - Dandelion Chip

Nothing to say really. From users reports looks like it does the job, but what kind of margin is there for the camera to consider in focus?

3 - Cheap chinese Focusing Screen.

Same reason as 1. I can't consider Katz-Eye, I'd rather spend the money (which I don't have) on AF lenses.

4 - Firmware update 1.4 (E-510)

Focus confirmation on legacy glass. Cheapest road, the problem is: it may never open.

Gentlemen, post your choice and coment.
