What's the turn around time for this conversion?

scratched taking lens [gasp!!!]. I don't know if I'd install one on
a beater
Rollei. If you shoot mostly outdoors, you might be able to do
without. I did
notice that the Maxwell screen makes it easier for me to focus
without the
magnifying lens. I don't know that they are 6x brighter (that seems
downright blinding).

Paul Ebel is working on my 2.8E and I thought perhaps I'd have him install a Maxwell screen while he has it. I hear they are phenominal, with something like 6x the brightness of the standard Rollei screen.

The bad news, of course, is that they cost $150USD.  So, should I
do it?
Are they worth it?
