EF body viewfinder : microprim with/out spli-image ?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

Hi, I have an EF body with Split-image rangefinder encircled by microprism rangefinder at center of fresnel matte screen. I saw one in a shop with Microprism rangefinder only. Does any one know if there were 2 series ? or has one of there screens been changed ? Does this affects metering or are they both center-weighted ? Thanks.

The change to the combination focusing aid was made during production. Microprism only were used in the earlier models. Don't know when changeover took place.
