Auto Focus Frame

Does any-one know if there is a screen with a more pronounced auto Focus frame on it? I currently have the stndard screen frame which I have focused with the diopter adjustment against a light background, but when I photograph against a dark / variable background, the auto focus frame is very difficult to see !
Cheers !

The optional framelines available on the screens from are laser-etched bright-line (albido) and are very visible when the viewfinder is dim. This brightness comes at a price, however, in that it may bias the meter on the K-3 (my personal experience) when used with slower lenses. I cannot say for other model cameras.

Many thanks for that info Steve and will certainly have a look at focusing and see what effect they have on the K-7 metering.
Cheers !
