    You may want to see if they have the Canon Ee-S screen.
    Some fella on PF touting this as the best focusing screen for fast lenses.
    Best screen ever for manual focus : Canon ee-S!!! - PentaxForums.com

    KatzEye is definily over price imo. Even those K3 or Ee-S screens from focusingscreen.com are not that cheap. It's a lot hassle to put in and aline the focusing screen properly w/o scratching it. Now I just either rely on the stock screen or LiveView.

    I got all my split screen and other photo stuffs from my friend in HongKong, if you need one, can pm me.
    he sends stuffs over sometimes, so can send together if you need one.

    Alternative and maybe a even better solution if you use MF to shoot still or slow things will be to get a Hood-loupe and use liveview.
    The China made ones are probably around $80.

    Ok, i have dropped them an email.. .Let's see whether they can cut down the Canon EE-S focusing screen down to Pentax K-r's size. Haha!
    If they do, then i think i will order..

    If they can't, then i will just settle for the K3... ;/

    Anyone interested to try also? The Canon EE-S focusing screen that is.

    Thought of trying the Canon EE-S but currently no stock for k5. Think you have to wait awhile as I last read from pentaxforum, the same thread. They are trying to get stocks from Japan.
