AB-82 Split Focus Screen

Hi all,

I recently bought an AB-82 split image focussing screen for my 645D.

Wow! What a difference it makes. I can finally get perfect infinity focus and its great.

Anybody looking for one can find them on Amazon.

I found one on Ebay last week. Brand new old stock. They had two for sale. Perhaps someone here got the other one? Very excited to see if I feel the screen improves manual focusing.

Um, this screen made everything a lot lot 50 percent shots out of focus. Any tips or links to correct usage of this sort of screen? Thanks in advance.

If any of you want to sell your AB-82, down the road I'm interested.

If changing the focusing screen makes things worse then it's probably because it needs to be shimmed to get it in exactly the right place.
