not that hard to scratch it if you are not careful. Te surface is not smooth. If you look at that twp pictures as inserted by catchlight, that last one which is from a F4 Nikon. the top part is smooth but to get the image to project on the screening surface on the other side of the screen, the surface is matt which means it is easier to scratch then say maybe the CCD which has a glass covering or even leave micro lints on it if you are not careful cleaning it with a cotton bud for example. It is also made of plastic and not glass. I miss my F3,F4 and F5 which is so easy to just remove the pentaprism and replace the focus screen ( or change to a difference type temporary) myself but with the D70s..etc, you have to send it in to be done which I think adds to the cost and time it takes to do it.

i remember seeing somewhere in CS someone who changed his DSLR (can't remember if it's a nikon) to a split screen type. you can do a search for it and contact the member.
