Anyone looking for a replacement Pentax L80 Focusing Screen - the standard one - might be glad of this ebay link - PENTAX K10D FOCUSING SCREEN $12 US.
Note that this is a service part, so no box, case or tweezers - but you're not paying for them either. Mine came in a zip baggy in a padded envelope.

And they have just reduced their International shipping rate to $6 US (vs $29) for this item if you accept the risk of a non-confirmed delivery (but you'd have to lose 2 in a row to exceed the higher shipping rate for confirmed delivery!)

Good service, and 'Tracy' is very pleasant to deal with.

No connection, just thought others might find this useful.

Isn't that just how it goes? But back then it would have cost you $35 due to the shipping ...

Still SRS' price seems very competitive for the packaged accessory - lower than everyone else's.

Will this work like my ME-Super screen, i.e. split circle creating two semi-circles that have to be aligned?

I purchased one of these screens a couple of months back, as described it is a OEM part without the box and tweezers. Mine took around 10 days to arrive.

How can you damage one of these and need a replacement? Bad cleaning perhaps?
