If you "truly" want to go back in time I suggest getting one of those split screens. CLICK HERE! (external link)

Just like in the good old days. I have one of those and it works pretty good. However, if you use a modern AF lens with a screen like this, spot metering will be 100% unreliable.

1: I use Spot Metering almost never, so I'm cool with that.
2: Katzeye doesn't make one for the 5d2. Serious facepalm. I mentioned this in my other thread which didn't give me too many answers.

The other option is the Lux approach, which I'm debating.

Just bought an M42 adapter for the 5D, with my Nikon-EOS adapter and the Nikon FE split-prism focus screen, and a 135/3.5 18-blade aperture lens, this should be good.

5DC? How does one get the Nikon split-prism screen to work?

@1. I use it all the time for motorsport, wildlife and airshows - so I switch from time to time. It isn't hard to do. Just annoying....

@2. That sucks. There is a company or an individual making screens from old SLR's. The only thing the user has to do is adding proper shims to get it just right. I bought one of them some time ago. I still have it, but won't fit your camera, because it's for the 40D.
Give me a couple of days and I will dig out the info if you like.

Cheers.

Definitely! Can't hurt.

I'm kind of lost as to which screen would be best for me. I hear BrightScreen w/ their magnifier is awesome... just gotta find one. Thing is, I shoot street over half the time, so have tons of shots that aren't focused in the center. That's where not use spot metering is plus, but the split prism might not be so great for shots. I can always focus on the subject then move it over as a compromise, I'm sure.

These are film shots from my 40+ year old Nikkormat FTN with the pre-ai Nikkor 50/1.4. Not MF adapted images but, I wanted to share anyways.

Not very happy with the developing of these rolls. Awful grainy and lacking sharpness for 400 speed Ilford Delta HP5 Plus.
