    You should not need to use DoF preview (called "stop-down metering") to meter properly with that equipment. The prisms are designed to use full-aperture metering (wide open).

    However, if it's working and you're satisfied with the operating method, go for it.

    Since the OP said that the camera has a needle to indicate exposure then it's must be the DP1 or DP11 viewfinder (F2 Photomic or F2A Photomic). While there is no confirmation from the OP that whether it is the F2 Photomic or F2A but I think it's the F2A. I hope the OP can confirm this.

    Chan,
    I think it is the DP1 finder, F2 Photomic. Anyway its all been figured out, just operator error! Thanks for the help.

    Ricardo,
    That is the plan! I sure appreciate all the input I've had on this. I was swamped in confusion, this was operator headspace at it's best (worst). Haha
