K-7...Inconsistency in the EL

With the release of firmware 1.10 we can see now the nice view of the Electronic Level on the LCD by pressing the Info button three times (nothing new here!).

In my case this feature highlights more the inconsistency of the EL and therefore I find it useless.
1) In the viewfinder the actual level is out by 3 dots to the left.

2) With the camera positioned on a level surface the top LCD shows the level out by 3 dots (same as in the viewfinder) but the new view on the main LCD shows the level out by 5 dots to the left.
Is anyone experiencing the same?
C & C always welcome.
