Hi everybody,

My first post here.

I recently acquired a D1X, in great shape and with three new batteries as well. Took some snaps, and was in love with the pictures it produced. The view-finder seemed gloomy & dirty, so ended up removing the f-screen, and puffed the area. The f-screen looked really dirty. So cleaned it up.

Now the view-finder is like new, but the metering has gone haywire. I mean it is severely under exposing everything by nearly 1.3 stops. I suspect the dirty looking thing that I cleaned up from the screen was infact some kind of coating, and it was there by design.

Is it so ? Any other ideas ?
