Split image focus screen for PZ-20?

Hi everybody,
I was wondering if it was possible too put a a split image focus screen on a Pentax PZ-20. I recently purchaced the camera and it's great. But a split image focus screen is the only thing that I need to add to at. As I have generaly all M lenses that I'm using with my ME super, the focus screen would be great.
Did anyone put a split image focus screen ona any Pz/Z camera ??

I don't see any reference to that as an accessory in the manual here: Pentax PZ-20 instruction manual, user manual

I suspect that like many (all?) of the PZ series cameras, and the DSLR's today. Pentax never made a split screen for them. It has an effect on the exposure metering. I have a PZ1 and PZ1p and they are able to take different screens but none are split screen versions.

I think that is true Peter, but it happens that you can replace the PZ-1 screen with a split screen from a ZX-M. PZ-1p is a different screen BTW.

Re: which focusing screen for PZ-1?

woof!

Hm, thanks for the answers... As I can see it's pretty much mission impossible.
Even if I get a split prism it won't be good and will need additional adjustment..
