Focusing screens for Manual on D800,Where to go?
Visit my Nikonians gallery.
I can't find much if any info on changing out my focusing screen. It can only be done by nikon, they do not make alternate screens and 3rd party screens break warranty... doesn't add up too well...

Third party screens don't particularly break your warranty. On at least most of the bodies, the screen is designed to be easily replaced. If you need to send something to Nikon for service, just put the original screen back in. But my experience has been that Nikon doesn't care about the focusing screens. I've had KatzEye screens in my D2 bodies, one of which went to Nikon twice and they never mentioned it.
The situation with the focusing screens is just like that of third party batteries, although admittedly it's not as trivial to swap them in and out. (It's not all that hard, though.)
