    Nikon F4 users out there, is something wrong with my eye?

    I bought this F4 a while back with a DP20. I can't help to notice I do not like the way the finder works.

    I usually like to push my eye as close as to the viewfinder as possible. However when I do it to the DP20. I find that, either I can see the Aperture on the top, then I can't see the LCD bar at the bottom, or the other way around, or half and half. Unless I hold it a little further away, play around with it by tilt it up and down till I can find both of them. My point is most of the time I can only see one and then I have to tilt it in whatever way to see the other one, that's kinda dumb.

    Any of you have that problem? Or is my eye ball defective, anyone got a bigger eye ball for sale?

    Hi,

    I brought out my F4 just to have a look, as I cannot remember ever having had (or, more precisely - ever having realized I had) that issue.

    With my eye as close to the (DP20) finder as possible, I found I could still see both displays clearly - however, either one will be in my peripheral vision at any time; I cannot read both without moving my eye up/down a bit.

    As for a DW20, I see KEH has got one in excellent condition for well south of US$100. (It is a most useful accessory; I use mine all the time when I do still lifes or macro - it makes life a lot easier.)
