Maybe the split screen Maxwell is the best of all possible worlds.
Maxwell Precision Optics 404 244-0095. (I have no connection with
Maxwell, other than as a satisfied customer.)

I think I need to buy a new screen. Normally I tend to go for screens with the split image wedge in the centre because in really low light it is the only way I am sure I am in focus.  I could try to find a Rollei screen of this type, or I could try a Maxwell screen. I wonder if anyone has any particular recommendations for a screen for low light as well as normal photography to use with this lens, and also to use with the 80 and 150/4?  I'm wondering if there is a Rollei screen that would suit the purpose here well enough.
