D800 will spot meter with center point only when using manual lenses
Apr 14, 2012

Interesting thing I found today. The D800 will spot meter tied to the center focus point if a manual lens is used regardless of which focus is selected.

When a newer G lens is used, then spot meter is tied to the selected AF point, otherwise an old manual lens will spot meter tied with center AF point only.

I am surprised the metering is tied to lens choice..
