I just had a small debate with one of my friends, on the topic of "Is a focusing screen so important, in a digital camera?" It sounds like a silly question, but the thought of digital cameras having the focusing indicator (on a Nikon, this yellow dot that lights up on the bottom left corner of the viewfinder), is the focusing screen still important? What if you do without one? Will it make a lot of difference? Will it be any faster if you were to use one? I would like to hear some views from everyone. New and old in experiences of photography. Thanks.
