[ACQUIRED] Focusing screen for ist DS

I need a new focusing screen for my ist DS.

I found an LI-60 AF Scale Matte online, but I would prefer either an LF-60 AF Frame Matte or an LL-60 AF Divided Matte. And I'd really rather not pay Katz Eye's prices.

I understand, while similar, the LL-80 and ML-60 are not compatible. I also understand I should not use a split-image focusing screen for the *ist D or *ist DS because AF functions and multi-zone metering can be "confused" by the use of such a screen (according to Pentax).

Can anyone help?

Thank you.

Well, based on feedback elsewhere on the forum, I'm going to give an LL-80 a try.

Do I need to change the thread status from Wanted? If so, how?
