    I have two, one with focus confirmation and one without, which I used for both my 40D and 5D. PM me if you are interested. The K 50f1.2 is a good lens.

    Oh you can try tagotech, deal extreme or even eBay. I wouldn't pay more than $50 for them though. Good luck!

    You can also go to peninsula to ask around. I know the corner store (monster camera) at the exit to the excelsior hotel has them.

    ya i dun need AF chip.. i think it is useless for me.. a good focussing screen is better... but my low end 500d VF so small and can only use 3rd party focusing screens (which i heard is of little help).. so using live view is better .. haha..

    too bad i got no friends in China.. hahaha... think all these ebay n tagotech got their stock from china too.. maybe $2 ..

    NZ is nice! But you sure you can take the pace? Haha. They're super laid back there. So after 4.30pm on a typical Saturday don't even think of going shopping. I love it though. Haha

    I have used one of those focusing screen on my defunct 1KD. It is really of little help cause the VF is really dark on a crop camera. It is easier to train the eyes to understand the characteristic of the lens and it focusing distance.

    thanks.

    I was looking through ebay and online site in sg (eg: targo-tech). Most sells the chrome version, which is what I am trying to avoid. I am looking for those that is matt black like the one available by Kipon. I have been using kipon adapter and they are good. No MIC stigma.

    Does anyone know any shop in sg I can get an kipon adapter? thanks

    I read some where that there is internal reflection when used with very fast lens. But I dunno... it is just a personal preference for me.

    i saw a black one on ebay.. with shipping i tink it costs $20 plus.. i guess it is better to get a black one... the internals of the lens is not white also i think.. so it does make sense..
