KatzEye is definily over price imo. Even those K3 or Ee-S screens from focusingscreen.com are not that cheap. It's a lot hassle to put in and aline the focusing screen properly w/o scratching it. Now I just either rely on the stock screen or LiveView.

wait omg $85usd. .. :cry:

cannot afford lei..
Alternative and maybe a even better solution if you use MF to shoot still or slow things will be to get a Hood-loupe and use liveview.
The China made ones are probably around $80.

Ok, i have dropped them an email.. .Let's see whether they can cut down the Canon EE-S focusing screen down to Pentax K-r's size. Haha!
If they do, then i think i will order.. :D

If they can't, then i will just settle for the K3... ;/

Anyone interested to try also? The Canon EE-S focusing screen that is.

Thought of trying the Canon EE-S but currently no stock for k5. Think you have to wait awhile as I last read from pentaxforum, the same thread. They are trying to get stocks from Japan.
