Pentax KE-60 Focus Screen

Does anybody know if this is similar to the Canon EF-S, EG-S, or EE-S? And will it fit on the K20D?
Thanks

Thank you Adam! That's to bad, the only thing I can find for the K20D are split prism screens. I know a lot of wedding photographers swear by the EF-S, EG-S, or EE-S on their Canons, was hopping to find something similar. Guess I will have to wait till I Upgrade my camera, whenever Pentax decides to release a new model.

Anyone used this thing? I'm intregued. I don't really like split-prism screens either, but wouldn't mind something to help visualize focus better.

I went ahead and ordered the KE-60 Focus Screen, I am going to take it down to my jeweler and see if they can cut the glass to match my K20D. I will update when I get results.

KE-60 is a myth

Looks like the KE-60 is a myth. Got this response from chuck at B&H who was quite helpful "Both the ME-60 and KE-60 have the same part number. I suspect the KE-60 is no longer available and our we posting is incorrect. " I have been unable to find any info on the KE-60 besides the incorrect B&H posting witch should reed ME-60. Looks like Pentax does not have anything comparable to the Canon EF-S, EG-S, or EE-S focusing screens.
