Does anyone else notice that the viewfinder seems a bit grainier w/the Ee-D or is it just me?

I have both the D and S screens. The D stays in my camera almost all the time. The horizontal and vertical lines seem to help in both framing and orentation. At least they make me pay more attention to that. I use the S screen only for manual focus in macro work. I think it helps focusing marginally, but not dramatically. My only problem using them has been remembering to change the custom function setting when I change screens.

And to answer the OP question, the S screen does not have grid lines.

Same here.

Has anyone used both the Ee-d and Ee-s focusing sceens? Which do you prefer?

Does the Ee-s have a grid like the Ee-d? How is the Ee-s at smaller apertures, like f10 or f11?

I don't do any manual focusing and mostly shoot landscapes and portraits so I'm leaning towards the Ee-d. The lens I use the most is the 24-105.

Thanks.

Well it gets pretty dark after f/5.6 with the Ee-S !

EE-D got put in on my first outing and has not left the camera since. I was totally paranoid about doing it, but did it in about 30 seconds. Piece of cake and makes a huge difference when trying to frame, line up horizons, etc.

The grid isn't faint, but it's not very obtrusive either.

The EeD helps a lot going ultra wide on the 5D (12mm or 15mm Fish-eye) to straighten out the picture. Stitching is easier, too. I love this focusing screen.


Two bodies left, some "soso" lenses, and still a lot of gear.....

Apologies for the necropost...

Anyone use the Ee-D to help with 5:4 aspect ratio composition on a 5Dc? I never gave much thought to aspect ratio issue until now, since it would appear none of my photos ever actually get printed (:o) and 8x12 frames are non-standard.

It'd be nice to have the ability to change between 3:2 and 5:4 in-camera, like Nikon.

Thanks!
