I Have brought up this question indirectly in some other threads. I used to have an R4, and although the screen wasn't terribly bright, it had good "snap" in and out of focus on the matte portion. I find the standard screen that came with my R7 to be very bright, but the matte portion is too clear, even the out of focus area can still be seen with this screen. I wondered if the other current screens available have a different, coarser matte portion, or if they are the same as the screen I now have just without the center aids. I find I dont like using just the center focusing aids. I was even thinking about picking up an R4 type screen and sending it to Bill Maxwell to run his magic process on it, hoping I'd get the brightness level of the current R7 screen with the snap of the older R series screens. Any experience with screens in this camera would be appreciated.
