Using a PZ-10 Focus Screen on a K-5?

Anybody know if its possible to use the focus screen from the PZ-10 on the K-5. I just picked up a parts camera today for screws and such and thought that the VF screen might be easier for focusing with my Super Tak 50.

It would have to be cut to the right size. I don't see how it would make focusing easier since it doesn't have any focusing aids....

Pity that screen sizes have changed. It would be really nice to use LX screens on a K5 or K3.

That it would be. But I would want the ME screen personally. I love that one!
