    When I had the EOS 3 I had the EC-CIV installed. It shows focus much better than the stock screen and didn't need any exposure compensation. Don't know if it is relevant and can't tell about the DOF preview, I hardly used it.

    I am curious about that screen too. It sounds brighter than the Ec-S, but I am not sure if it shows any less D of F than the EOS 3's stock focusing screen.

    I just ordered two (for my two EOS 3s). I'll come back to let you know how it goes. Really hoping the metering effect is minimal.

    Two EC-S screens or two EC-CIV screens?

    Sorry, I bought the EC-S. Thinking I may try the EC-CIV as well.

    Since I bought a used Canon EOS 3 a few weeks ago I'm very interested in changing the focusing screen, since the standard screen doesn't allow for a good DOF preview with lenses faster than 2.8.
    The EOS 3 behaves different as my Olympus OM 2, which gives a correct DOF preview even with a 1.8 lens.
    at WFisherPhoto: Did you already install the EC-S focusing screen?

    Just installed the EC-s on my 1V ... haven't run a roll through it yet, but dry firing, it seems to focus my 1.2 lens just fine. We shall see... How is the EOS 3 different? Sizing?
