res3567:Hi Jewell. You recomend jinfinance? I ordered the combo; magnifier and screen.

Your take?

My take is I love my jinfinance screen---sorry, just got in from a vacation down South. The screen allows for precision in manual focus, especially when used with the KPS 1.35x magnifer. Let me know how you make out with it. Be sure to remove the protective cover before you install the screen--many people have missed this super-thin sheathing, and installed the screen only to have blurriness of course.

Robert, please note the magnifer at the website you attached is the Pentax 1.20x one. It is okay, but I upgraded to the KPS & am delighted I did.

I bought one of the jinfinance 45 deg focusing screen.
It doesn't come with installation instructions, just 2 finger tip "condoms".
I didn't find those particularly useful--for anything.

Thank you Jewell. I am still waiting for it to arrive! Yes, I realize the magnifier is not the same quality as the KPS one, but I decided to give the combo a try; not to pleased with the screen I have.
