    Focusing screen for Olympus OM-1

    My new acquisition has a zone focusing screen while I'd prefer a split image one.Where can I pick one up? (Other then that auction site).

    Thanks

    http://www.lutoncameras.co.uk/ That's where I got a focusing screen for my OM-2.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    I'll swap you a split-image/micro prism for your zone focus screen. Send a PM if you are interested.

    1-3 is the split image / matte area screen found in oldest OM-1. The 1-13 has split image, surrounded by micro-prism collar and matte. The 1-14 is like 1-13 only with split image at 45 degree angle. I have 1-3, 1-14 new in box and 1-13 as brand new repair part. John

    What's a "Zone focusing screen", does he mean a Microprism ?

    Do you still have this split image screen, or did you trade?

    The one with the grid is the 1-10 (checker-matte), its primarily used for shift lenses. Its also supposed to work well with long telephoto lenses and especially well for macro.

    Mike.
    If you're still looking you can PM me about a 1-13 that I'm not using. It has the case, tweezers and Canadian shipping costs.
