Thanks for the link, Mike. If the bright treatment only got 1/2 stop 
improvement down to F5.6 then it doesn't help much as I don't have any lens 
slower than F5.6 except the Zuiko 500mm.

I believe the split or microprism is not as accurate as the ground glass. 
For Canon FF some people offer focusing screen modified from the older Canon 
screen with split and microprism, if necessary I believe I can modify one 

MF with liveview is slow and the one without rotating LCD is not good to 
operate. Holding the camera up at eyelevel with such heavy camera is no fun. 
I love the E-3, I did some low angle macros with live view and the 90/2, it 
worked very well.
