    Question Nikon F2 - viewfinder display problem?

    Hey guys,
    I got an F2 recently fitted with a DP-2.
    My problem is that the shutter speeds don't show properly in the viewfinder. When I set the speeds to the exact click stops on the dial, the numbers in the finder are never straight and not in the middle, only when I turn to half stops they move into the right place inside the little square. I took off the finder to see if I could line it up properly but I had no success so far, every time I put it back the same thing happens. Perhaps I should unscrew something underneath the ISO dial and then try to move the dial to the right place but I don't want to mess with it unless I know what I am doing.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your kind responses, I got some good advice on another forum already, I will do a thorough test next week to see if I should send the camera back to the seller or not.

    Just an update,
    a member on another forum suggested to check the meter for accuracy against my other cameras and indeed it was off, so at the end I decided the best thing to do is to send the camera back to the seller.
