    And as Felix enlighten mi, for portrait I still have my 35 f2.4 and 50mm f1.7 to rely on. Thanks

    Anyway additional question, can I get the k-3 split focus for slrr? Or somewhere near there
    Hi there!

    Is your 50/1.7 AF or MF? If it's AF, skip the focusing screen altogether!
    Just use the AF points...

    Oh, but if you DO consider getting one, just get the Canon ee-S focusing screen. It's superior to everything else..

    if you're not that picky on IQ, I would get the 28-75, and use the kit lens for the wide end.

    Oooooo..... I didn't know you obtained it too!
    Superb for MF!

    Anyways, OP!! Another advice for you, since you have decided on the tamron 17-50, get a decent CPL! Yes! Makes your sky bluer and nicer! That's one thing that people seems to forget in advising!

    The EE-S is indeed very good despite having no fancy ground glass or split screen (dont even have any markings on it).
    Made for f2.8 and faster lenses.
    Almost WYSIWYG in terms of DOF with this focusing screen.
