Tom, thank you very much for a great article.
In regard to 50mm rev, I have a small question.
Obviously, many people are using focusing screens with MF lenses (all us without liveview).
As far as I understand, going over f8 can present quite a challenge.
So, keeping all that in mind, would installing a focusing screen present a disadvantage? And if shooting without a focusing screen, is it difficult to focus correctly?
A split screen would help , but most of us use what was furnished with the camera. depending on the lens used for rev. some are easier to use than others for example . the older Takumar lens that have the Auto and manual switch for the aperture blades are nice because you can set the f stop say at f 11 in the auto mode. By doing this the lens aperture is still in it's most open position , so you have lots of light to focus , then when ready to shoot push it to manual the aperture closes down and take the shot . you can also just push the little pin that controls the aperture blades as well .
Hope this helps.
