Manual focus becomes easier

The installation was very easy. I started to use manual focus again after I installed this focus screen.

Better then expected in some ways.


from Osoyoos BC  -  Professional

Only use this for faster lenses like 2.8 or faster becasue for slower lenses it becomes very dark. Screen is very accurate for manual focus lenses and almost as good as a split image screen. Great for lens whacking/free lensing.


pay heed to the "dimmer with f/2.8"


from Fort Wayne, IN  -  Semi-Professional

I "always" use autofocus, but wanted to see a more correct depth of field in the viewfinder. I use mostly the 35mm f/1.4, 50mm f/1.4, and 85mm f/1.2. It's great for that... the background is much blurrier in the viewfinder than before. The downside... with my 2.8 zooms, the viewfinder is definitely dimmer than before. Not noticeable if the light is great, but if the light level is dimmer (read: indoors), then it's definitely harder to see what's going on. Long story short... great for ultra fast primes or outdoor use, probably a lot harder to use for zooms indoors. Wedding this weekend so we'll see! Definitely do not buy if you use slower lenses than f/2.8!


Better Focus


from Philadelphia, PA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I started using my Voigtlander 40 ultron 2 for about two months before I bought this focusing screen. There were a number of shots I missed. It took me longer than I had hoped to find focus, and focus confirmation. After installing the screen that time was cut significantly. It is clearly better to have this than not have this product for manual focus. It makes it easier to focus around the frame, and not rely on the focus points. If it does make the veiwfinder technically darker I haven't noticed, because the function it serves outweighs any additional darkness it MAY have added.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ROBERT M  I use this with Zeiss manual focus lenses. It really helps to achieve critical focus.
Shopper  Will this work on the new 6d?
PATRICK R  Yes, it will work with the 6D.
DARYL M  How is this item installed/applied? Does it remain "secure" in-place/when attached?
ROBERT M  The screen comes with installation instructions, and you can find more elaborate instructions using a search engine. Basically, you remove the lens, use the supplied tool to remove the old screen and replace it with the new screen, and then you re-install the screen. It's very simple to do. The screen is secured behind a little "door" that must be opened to remove the old screen and install the new screen.
