Does the KatEye have the OptiBrite treatment and/or AF brackets?

Cheers

The Katzeye does improve MF. I find it such a joy to use especially with my 50mm. As far as AF goes, I did have to micro adjust it to my Tamron 17-50mm and the FA 31mm. Then again, I had to do the same with my K-7.

The Katzeye has AF brackets but no grids and no OptiBrite treatment. Hope that helps Enigmaticca.

The katzeye is already installed on the k-5 - I'm just showing the cover so you might know which focusing screen it is. Also the oem focus screen will be included with the sale.
