Hi all,

So I rented a 5Dm3 to see how it does, and well the focus screen is a mess. I thought it would be easy to drop the screen down like in my 1D, but apparently need to remove screws for this to happen?

This true, or am I missing something?

I would take it back to wherever you rented it from and get it fixed there. If you break it by trying to fix it yourself you will be liable for any damages.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

The 5D III screen is not interchangeable so is fixed. I wouldn't remove it or you may run into trouble!
