Anyone any experience with the precision screen with a 400mm 5.6 attached (not the 100-400mm) Many thanks Roger
I can only say that I tried one and found it to be quite dim even on my 200 f/2.8 unless there was a lot of available light. I swapped it for the grid screen.
Thanks Ian ... i reall want the ability to improve my focussing and be able to view a better representation of the 'scene' including dof - the grid is less important ... I'll maybe give it a go and use it in good light ... Roger

Yeah, I don't do architectual or have a TS Lens. It's the general photography category that I fit into. So, if the grid really helps, I think I might try it. Anybody know where to get it cheaper than the $40 I've seen?
Did you realize that the grid overlay is also available as a Live View option? I always adjust Tilt shift lenses in LV, but even if you prefer the viewfinder, just a single button press moves you to live view for a quick grid overlay. Also with a choice of grids.
