I'd offer to send them over you but with the hassles i've had with the 40mm it may just be too much of a pain in the ass for you. Ship to me, then to you. If there is a prob then back to me and then back to store..... and so on. Hopefully CA Camera House does decent prices.

I'm pretty sure my k10 came with a knockoff katz eye. I got it on ebay with the split prism installed and the standard screen in a case, but the split prism on mine is diagonal, so i dont think its a legit katzeye. the prism starts dimming early, but with careful eye placement its still usable at 8 or 9. i cant think of a time i would ever need a split prism to be funtional past 6.3 (slowest lens i own is the kit lens cause i needed a cheap af that could go wide) because i dont use any extention tubes or TCs or any other add ons really.
I honestly could not really imagine using an slr much without a split prism. even with af, you can use the prism to make sure it focused on what you wanted it to, not something else thats in the af zone.
Thanks to the focus screen contributors to this thread
I am going to have a wee delve in the wrecked Pentax MG and see if I can do a resize
failing that, the chinese/CatsEye route will get a look
