K2 focusing screens

I just got a K2 back from Eric and it's working flawlessly, but having used it for some time now I can say that I miss the split screens on my Me Super and MX. I'm not having trouble focusing but the split screen would certainly be a bit easier. Eric just e-mailed me that he hasn't had any K2 screens in a while. So...any thoughts about a split screen for a K2?

They are hard to find, all K2DMDs had the split screens.
Finding one of these might be easier than finding a K2 with a split screen.

I've been looking for a K2 split for my brown K2 since last Summer. I just found/bought a black one with a split last week [no, you cannot have it]. I'm currently talking with Eric to have the screens swapped.

All of the K2s with splits that I found, and lost out on in the bidding, were black. So be on the lookout for black K2s [and K2DMDs].

I did see one chrome K2 at a camera show with a split. The asking price was ridiculous considering the camera's condition, so I passed on it.

My K2 is black, but alas, no split. Actually, focusing isn't bad at all, but anyway.....

You could look for a good deal on a non-working K2 body on eBay, for use as a parts donor.
