I would like to buy a microprism or split image screen for my 5d2. I see that canon doesn't make one... for some weird reason.

Anyone know a way around this?

I also see that katzeye doesn't either.

Because you would lose spot metering. They are still available if you google for it.

Has anyone here used the EC-A (microprism) screen? If so, how is the focusing accuracy? I don't mind losing spot metering.

I use one in my 7d. It's precise in good to decent light with lenses up to F/3.5. A little hard when it's dark
