I have just bought a modified LTR7 with a videotap and two zeiss superspeeds (mk1 12mm 1.2f/s & mk1 25mm 1.2f/s).

Everything on the camera looks and works fine, except;
In the viewfinder i can see a very noticeable double image - especially when shooting a practical light.
I doubt this would be the lenses, since i've checked both, and they both produce the same double imaging (plus i trust zeiss)
I want to blame the videotap which was added by Visual Products. I'm not sure how to deflect the beam-splitter so i can check this. Anyone know this Visual Products videotap and how you can deflect it (http://visualproduct...ctID=741&Cat=11)?
At any rate, i really want to believe this is a fixable problem, and just requires some adjustment.
i've never ran film through it, so i can't say if the double image is captured on film.
Anyone run into this problem? I'm in contact with the seller, but i am so nervous i'm asking everyone i could think of...
any help would be very appreciated.
