            Comments about Nikon Focusing Screen E3 for FM3A:

            I purchased this screen to use with my Nikon FA. It is very bright and focusing is precise. The grid makes it very easy to frame my images and to make sure that my camera is lined up with the verticals and horizontals. The great part is that there is no need for exposure compensation with the FA or FE2. Love this screen.

              I bought this as I needed a guide to compose some architectural shots. I works great. And as another reviewer mentioned, the clear matte really helps with focus, albeit no split screen.

              Comments about Nikon Focusing Screen E3 for FM3A:

              I bought this for my FM2N. There appears to be a 1/3 stop difference between the stock K2 screen and this E3 screen, but I would recommend trying for yourself to see what works for your paticular camera (I don't bother dialing in exposure compensation because my FM2N tended to overexpose a little bit anyway).

              My E3 screen came with NO instuctions or documentation of any kind, so you should either refer to your camera manual or check online before you start poking around inside your mirror box! The screen came in a case with a nifty pair of tweezers, and it even has an extra slot to place your other screen during changing.

              I love this screen; the grid is very useful, but it doesn't get in the way when I'm not using it. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to focus properly without a split prism, but I've found I do just fine without (I have pretty good eyesight though; test for yourself).
