    focus screen replacement

    Hi I have a question. I want to change the focusing screen on my D7100. I want a split screen micro prism I think it's called to help me with manual focusing and macros. I have one I ordered a long time ago unopened. It's a Nikon focusing screen but for a Pentax body. A K-7 to be exact. I have the specs here FK3 is that a good one and most importantly is it a good fit for the 7100? They also have something else checked off on the box. FS-45DS It's unopened and I don't have pentax gear anymore. Any info or suggestions would be welcome.

    this one will take a bit of time. I know : )

    thx,

    I don't get it. You have both a focusing screen and a camera, but still want to know if it'll fit? Why not try it? If you want it in your D7100, what difference does it make if you have any Pentax gear any more?

    Not sure why you think you have a Nikon screen made for a Pentax body. It's like saying I have a Ford alternator made for a Chevy. FWIW, I'd say it's not going to fit.

    because I don't know if it will fit inside of the 7100, it's a nikon focusing screen and I'm new at this. I don't want to scratch or mess up anything. I bought it for a pentax camera

    Even if it's a Nikon screen, odds are it still won't fit. Even across the Nikon line, focus screens were different. When I ordered my split-screen / microprism years ago, I had to scroll through several bodies before I found the D7100 listed.

    I got a KatzEye, but they're closed up now. You might find one on Ebay or someplace similar, but it'll take some digging. Maybe one of the big online stores (Adorama, KEH, B&H etc) has a 'new / old stock' one.

    I made a mistake, the specs I gave are for the one I put in the Pentax K-7. After rolling it around in my head. I realized that's the old box for the screen I had replaced. What I did end up finding was the (K3) focusing screen. TYPE K3, will that one fit like a glove?

    Is that $2,300 for a focusing screen?

    I have no clue, but reading through questions on B&H for this item, it doesn't seem as though it will work on any DSLR. But maybe call Nikon and ask to find out for sure?
