They are indeed very delicate - just touching them can cause damage. A friend bought my E500 Katz Eye focusing screen from me, and despite taking extreme care, managed to scratch the old screen in the process of replacement. The E500/510 screens are, of course, not designed as user-changeable, so the process is a bit more fiddly.
