I've never used a Beattie, but I'll vouch for the Olympus screens. I have 
both the 2-4 and the 2-13. They are a significant improvement over their 1-x 
counterparts in my OM-2S and OM-4. They are also cheaper than the Beattie. 
They also seem to be on back order more often than not.

I've considered a Beattie because I've become too accustomed to the 1-10 I 
keep in my OM-1 - I really like a grid. I've heard the grids in the Beatties 
are a little coarse and crude, though.

Hope this helps,
