Wow, nice score.

Mike, do you lose use of AF confirm blips when you change out the screens?

You download Magic Lantern firmware, and focus on the screen. It has Focus peaking which makes it really easy to focus manual glass. I dont use it for other than video though, Im too used to viewfnders.

Its really easy to shoot manual glass with split screen, but it makes shooting AF glass difficult. There is at least one split prism that reatins the side focus points, but the cheap ones only have the prism.

Let's just put it this way, if you don't want it, I want it. Five minutes ago.

I have a programmable EMF chip in my AI adapter and honestly it was a bit of a letdown. Not entirely convinced it's that accurate, but more importantly, my 1D2 totally ignores its programming. So it works in the 30D, a camera I would prefer to never use with an MF lens ever again, and doesn't work with the camera I tried to position to handle all my MF lenses--the 1D2 with split prism.
