Greetings from a new member. Looks like a great site. I have something weird happening on my new, just out of the box D800. Using any Nikon lens, when I set the camera to manual (I'm old school, sorry), I get the exposure scale reading, in the viewfinder, in reverse. ie: if the image is over-exposed, it reads as being under, and vice-versa. The LCD on the camera top reads correctly, its just through the lens that's operating back to front. Have I missed a really obvious setting? Camera is fine in all other modes. Should I be repacking the camera and sending it back pronto? Very grateful for any input, and my apologies if I've missed something really obvious. I've been pro for over 30 years, using Nikon from AE-1's onwards.
