I inquired at Katz Eye about a focusing screen for my D3. I have been shooting in Oregon this week (crappy weather ruining the last couple days) and have been frustrated by a lack of 8x10 lines in my viewfinder. I know I can change to 5:4 mode but I don't necessarily want to shoot in 5:4 mode.

So I thought I would order one of the Katz Eye screens for next time.

They don't make screens for the D3. From their email reply:

The D3 is definitely a model we would like to support, but current technical limitations prevent us from making screens for this camera and it is unknown if we will support the D3 in the future.

Does anyone know what the "current technical limitations" are in Katz Eye making a focusing screen for the D3?
