Is there any screen for the 700si that gives a split circle image like in maunal cameras ?

I see the list of screens over here, but none of them looks like the old split circle screen.

I don't know which Minolta model after the 7000/9000/5000 that has split circle screens as an option. I have never tried to check if all screens have the same physical dimensions, either, but if they have, you could use the Focusing screen 70 type PM (for the original 7000). You would obviously lose all 700si-specific markings on the screen, such as focusing indicators and spot metering circle...

Note that I don't know if it will fit, but I do know that the x000 and x000i series use the same matte screen, spare the markings. Chances are that they are standardized in size (except for 9/7).
