focus screen question

Hopefully an easy question:
How much of the focus screen is visible through the finder on a K10? I'm trying to figure out the actual measurement in mm.
Thank you!

It's rated at 95% of the sensor area.

Thank you both!
If my attempt at a portrait crop line (with 8x10 vertical and 5x7 horizontal) on a cheap focusing screen works, I'll post my success. If it doesn't work out, I'll be out thirty bucks and I'll probably not say anything else about it

Do let us know how it turns out. We're all ready to learn new goodies, particularly when they are cheap.
