Picked up a type P focusing screen for my F4s. $20.
Are they hard to come by?
P screen is the horizontal split correct?
What am I missing here John? ? ?
it seems you would've already had a few boxed layin' around your crib.
Are F4 screens hard to find?
Only the split prism type that really helps for manual focus.
I took an F2 "P" screen and put it in the frame for a standard F4 screen and it works great.
Seems at lesat F2/F3/F4 focusing screens are equally sized - only the frames are different. So when neccessary you can use F2's screens on F4 and vice versa by swapping frames
I'd say you scored; the E is my screen of choice but the P is second. I also love the G series and I want to try the H series, but I don't like how they work well with some lenses and not others.
John, yes, the screen is in like new condition. Of course, I should've kept it as a spare when Kenmore Camera in Kenmore, WA handed it to me for free. Instead, I traded it at a repair shop for a K2 screen for the FM2n I owned at the time.
With respect to the G and H screens, you almost have to buy them as a set, if you have lenses that require different versions.
The F/F2/F3 screens do work, but, it's best to find a red dot F3 screen if you're going to build your own P screen. The F, F2, and non-red dot F3 screens need -1/3 stop exposure compensation dialed in on the DP-20.
