Decided to give a different focusing screen in my Df

After purchasing a Nikon Df three weeks ago, I finally came to the decision to change the focus screen for macro photography, and my older AIs lens something I have struggled with both my D800, D4 and the Df. I have read that many others who were thinking about this DSLR felt that it should have come with a manual focus screen.

So I finally came to the decision to buy a new focusing screen and change it out. I purchased the Canon Ec CZ6-0554 split focusing screen from

This was the first time I had tried to change out a focus screen and I did run into some trouble as the directions were clear but also for changing on a Canon camera. After scratching the original screen with a small slip, I decided to use the youtube video for a focus screen change on a Nikon D70. It made things much clearer and it was a snap after that.

After changing it out two days ago, I really love it! My 24 f3.5 ED PC-E, 50 f1.2, 55 f2.8 and 100 2.8 are much easier to use and I have found the manual focus green dot can be a little off. Sure glad I made this purchase.

Now waiting for the one I purchased for the D800.
