Split-Image Focusing Screen BB-61 for Pentax 67II

Accessories :: Focussing Screen BB-61 for Pentax 67II - | japan exposures shop

Has anyone ever used this focusing screen before? I am really curious as to how much better focusing you can get compared to the standard screen that comes with the p67ii. Also does anyone know where I might be able to purchase this screen? It seems almost impossible to find. Thanks

I have this screen and got one new from eBay. There are a couple online sellers from Japan that still have them new. It's a little easier to focus than the standard BA-61 microprism matte, but it will depend on which lens and what you are shooting. It's also personal preference as well. The cross-lined screens are also good to keep things “level”, as well as the “bright” telephoto/macro screens.

I have the split screen, If I was shooting a lot of small DoF portraits I'd defiantly be hunting one down. But that might be just because I am comfortable with the split screen focusing on my FM2n so it carries over?

sometimes igorcamera.com has some.
