    manual focusing screen for Nikon d3

    Is there a manual focusing screen for Nikon d3? I know that KatzEye makes one for the Nikon D700, D2, etc.. but so far I haven't found anything for the Nikon D3...
    I would like to use a few MF lenses on a Nikon D3. I would like to have a split focusing screen so I can see whether the subject in focus.

    Thanks!

    I'm curious to know if the focus screens confirm the green dot's "in focus"?

    I'm thinking of getting a screen for my D700 for the few manual focus lenses I have. I'm not fully sure the green dot is confirming in focus all the time.

    Be aware the a split prism screen will mess up the spot metering on the D3.
    I know because I've tried screens from both Brightscreen and Canon (modified).

    Make sure you can keep your original screen. Here are some older threads about the subject.
