MZ/ZX-50 focusing screen

Hey everyone,
I got my first film SLR! It's a MZ-50. I've been quite surprise that there is no split screen on it! Does anyone knows if it's possible to fit a split screen focusing screen on it?
Thanks!

Yes, of course...
You just have to buy a MZ-m and swap the focus screens...
That's what I've done in my mz6, and it works like a breeze...

a memeber of this forum tried transplanting a ME screen to a MZ-S and was succesful

Maybe you could do the same

Well, using a mz-m focus screen is waaaaaaay easier, as it's made exactly for this...

Zav : I've just bought 3 such screens directly from Pentax France... Price is quite unbelievable, too (4€/screen, 4.60€ shipping)...
