400D - Out-of-focus when replaced focuseing screen

Hi there,

I have an old Canon 400D I'm shooting with. I mostly use it with some older Olympus OM Zuiko manual lenses (using a cheap OM-EFS adapter), so i recently replaced the original focusing screen with a split-image one but, unfortunately it fails to focus correctly.

Firstly I thought it was an adapter /lens issue but I get the same results with the kit lens (Canon 18-55). With this lens, when the camera beeps for focus, the image in the view finder is split, but the saved photo is fine-focused.

The focus is of by some factor, and I'd like to know if there's a way to compensate for this.

I'm sending a photo to help you understand my problem.

Thank you in advance.
