About Canon Ee-S

the Ee-S Super Precision focusing screen is designed to facilitate manual focusing with high-speed lenses (f/2.8 or faster). The Ee-S screen has finer microlenses than the Ee-A or Ee-D options, along with a steeper parabola of focus to make the image pop in and out of focus more vividly in the viewfinder; however, the Ee-S focusing screen is not recommended for slower lenses because it's not very bright

One reason why the Canon Ee-S is popular is because of its Easy to use

Totally Addicted

This is so much better than the split-circle focusing I used back in the day with my manual-focus film camera. With this, you can focus anywhere in the screen. So, I can constantly be adjusting my composition and focus at the same time, instead of going back to the center (or other) focus point as the subject moves and then recomposing. In many situations, this is actually faster than the camera can pull off, even though manual focus. It has gradually changed the way I shoot for the better.

Better screen for fast lens[...]

By

from Central TX  -  Semi-Professional

Changing the screen out wasn't difficult, just read the instructions carefully. I was expecting a larger improvement, but the modest gain was welcome. It works very well with my 85/1.8 and 70-200/2.8. The 24-105/4 is distinctly darker, but still usable with this screen. It is tough to use the LensBaby at lower settings (f/5.6 and f/8) because the screen is so dark. But it can be done, and I use the faster lenses much more. Remember to change the camera custom function for the focus screen, or the light meter will read wrong.

Should be the standard

By

from Zwolle, the Netherlands  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Very easy to install and it makes it so much clearer where the focus is. Also gives a better idea about the DOF. It even works fine with my f/4 lens. I doubt I will ever swap in the standard again.

Works great, manual focus is better too

By

from Puget Sound, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This screen works great - much easier to confirm visual focus or manual focus. The warnings are true though, you need faster maximum apertures to use this screen.

A great upgrade!

By

from Belingham Washington  -  Semi-Professional

I just put this in my 5d and testing with an 85 1.8 shows it is very easy to confirm exact focus, something that was not true with the standard screen. Very easy to change out and a huge improvement for very little money. I have not tried any slower lenses yet to see how that is but I also don't own any and am not planning on buying them. I truly appreciate that I can now control where I put the focus point with precision and confidence, despite poor vision and glasses. Highly recommended!

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MICHAEL B  I wanted to compensate for the poor autofocus funtion of my 5D Mark 1. The standard focus screens are pretty near worthless for manual focusing in my opinion. The Ee-S screen was a slight improvement, but still not adequate for my needs.
Rich M  Does this work with the 5D Mark III?
PETER M. F  I'm afraid I can't answer to the 5D Mklll, I cut it down and installed it in a Pentax kx. I can say that I'm very pleased with it in this particular application.
