? K2 K2-DMD focus screens

Is it posible to replace a K2 focus screen (cross-microprism) with a K2-DMD focus screen (split-image) ?

Thanks,

Yes but it's not an easy task. The screens are not user changeable like on a LX. Eric can do this for you.

Thanks for the info. The K2 is at Eric's right now. I have asked him this question, but haven't rcv'd an answer. He has quoted the CLA, but hasn't quoted a screen change.

The other problem is that Pentax does not have the focusing screens for the K2 anymore so unless he has what you want lying round he will not be able to do the job.

IIRC the K2 came with either microprism or split-image screen.
You could look for a non-working parts donor K2 body with the desired screen.

K2DMD bodies are rare and pricey, even non-working ones.
