    i have trouble focusing my manual focus lens, does anyone here use focus screens? i looked at an installation guide and it looks really tough to do. does it even help that much?

    It's easy to do on my camera. Press a tab, the screen drops down. Take it out, align the tab on the new one and press it back in place. Presto chango!

    get a 'split focus' screen, they work well with manual focusing, this type has been around for decades well before auto this and auto that...so yeah, I guess they work!
