I've had good success with the screen in the Beattie screens are too expensive, and are no improvement over the R5/6/7 screens. You could pick up a Leica bright screen for less than $50 the last time I bought one, when Beatties were twice as expensive. Some brightness is good, too, too much will make focusing less accurate. The reason is, contrast on the screen is reduced at too bright a level, and that is what you use to focus. The Leica screens were just the right level of brightness for me when shooting in less than optimal light. =================== Eric Welch Grants Pass (OR) Daily Courier NPPA Region 11 JIB chair Don't take life too seriously, you won't get out alive.
