Hi all,

I'm from Sydney and new to the list. My first question. I'm
considering replacing the focusing screen in my R6.2 because I do not
like split images and would prefer just ground glass or a central
spot of microprisms. I would like to know what experience people have
had with the so-called bright screen focusing screens, either from
beattie (approx $100USD - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/4399- REG/Beattie_82420_Intenscreen_for_Leica_R4_.html ) or the Brightscreen branded ones ( approx $200USD - http:// www.brightscreen.com/styles.html )

I've found the R6.2 screen to be a little darker than usual because
of the split to the meter, but I get by - I'm young and my eyes are
still good. Having said that, brighter/clearer would be welcome.

I'd appreciate any recommendations or warnings you might have.


HI Jon!

I had my existing screens treated by Bill Maxwell - price was reasonable (about $100 ea.) and it made a noticeable difference.

Sorry for the late reply!

Oh ... and, uh, Welcome to the zoo!
