This particular focus screen is a split-image with a microprism circle, which helps facilitate easier focusing with manual lenses. It is made by taking a Nikon K3 screen and re-sizing it to fit the Pentax K-7 camera. I believe this screen will also work in a Pentax K-5 (but verify 1st).

Here is the link to the company web site that sells the screen, and to this screen. The web site contains a lot of info about the screens they sell.

I am interested as I use a manual lens about 95% of the time. I have never really had any focus issues so does this make a large, noticeable difference?

There is a lot of chatter here at PF over the years about 'third party' focus screens. Type in the search tab of dSLR page, focus+screen+K7, for a ton of info & opinions about them. I am not going to give my opinion here as I feel that would be un-ethical at the moment. I am trying to sell a screen right now.

I will take the screen. I shoot manual almost exclusively so I will take the gamble.
