Re: FS2 Focussing screen

I have a knock off on mine. Gives new life to old glass . I have a unconfirmed suspicion it effects the auto focus however. Still it's a doddle to swap out on the e1

Re: FS2 Focussing screen

You can accurately focus manually. With my old OM glass it's massively increased my enjoyment.

If you hunt through my past posts you will find more info.
