    Canon EOS 1v focusing screen question

    Can you change them yourself or does it have to be done by Canon?

    The screens come with the removal tool/tweezers.
    Takes maybe 15 seconds.

    I only manual focus, and don't use the meter in the camera, so I'd like to buy 2 screens:

    EC-B (standard split image with microprism collar)
    EC-D (matt with gridlines)

    I put in the EEs (I think) which helps trmendously with manually focusing my fast glass. It just the super sensitive microprism one... Took me a few seconds to do, but a few days to work up the nerve!

    Yep, I put one on my 5D (opps did I just cop to having a 5D )
    I think its an "S"

    I believe the standard af screens are optimized for lenses with max aperture of 2.8

    What does "optimized" mean in this case? If I put and EC-B or EC-D in the EOS 1v to use with a 24mm TSE (f3.5) am I ok?

    Michael,
    I believe the deal is all screens except the "s" can show dof for 2.8 and greater due to how coarse the ground glass/screen is.
    So a 3.5 T/S would be fine with all the screens.

    The reason they made the "S" line of screens was for faster than 2.8.
    It supposedly shows the smaller dof that say a 1.4 or f/2 lens is capable of.

    I think Bruce is right. I got it for my adapted Rokkor lenses (50 1.2, etc...)
