Focusing MF Lenses

I have a several vintage Nikon lenses that I would love to use more frequently, however I find they are just too difficult to focus accurately on my D7100 using the optical viewfinder. I did have third party split focusing screen installed for a while which was helpful, but got in the way when using auto lenses.

Anyone have a good technique for MF lens focusing through the viewfinder? I'd rather not fool with live view and magnification, it just seems too tedious.

For people using both DX and FX bodies, does having the bigger FX viewfinder help at all?

thanks,

Joe.
