Hmmm, no. If there was "the one preferred screen" then there would be no need for a choice...

What you prefer may or may not be what anyone else prefers.

Me, I like the P (diagonal split RF central spot w/ microprism surround) and the E (grid on plain ground glass). The P isn't much good with >200mm lenses, and neither is optimal for <24mm. Nikon makes special screens for long and short lenses, but most people don't bother with them.

Without the gridded E screen my wide angle shots are invariably tilted a few degrees to the left.
