There's a little scale in your display. When EC is active, it's the 'exposure compensation indicator' described on page 30 of your X100 manual. When Manual Exposure is being used, and the EC dial is inactivated, it's the 'exposure indicator' described on page 27. It's driven by the meter. It's what allows you to meter the scene.

The scale can't serve both purposes at the same time. It has to be one or the other.

In that mode, EC is needed to prevent blown highlights resulting from the AE system selecting too high an ISO. An AE mode without EC is incomplete.

A proposal to bring in EC, without a coherent solution to losing the meter, is incomplete.

What do you mean by "losing the meter"?
