Why do that? Thumb and index to adjust speed, middle finger on release. Leaving the film-advance lever open, the thumb rests between it and the body. Three motions without having to readjust fingers: 1) film advance, 2) shttr spd and 3) release. Very comfy and makes for fast shooting.

Could we have a Nikon engineer chime-in and explain why they eliminated the illumination of the aperture setting in the DP-12 viewfinder (F2AS)? The DP-3 finder (F2SB), preceding the DP-12 has this handy feature. I can't recall if the DP-11 finder (F2A) has an illuminated ap setting.
