More testing to do......

We were talking about centre weighted vs matrix metering and legacy lenses and nothing to do with spot, but I will include spot in a more careful test.

Back on subject with Anders...

I was aiming at a dark brown tapestry on the wall that really occupied the centre weighted 60% of the frame with a low wattage stand lamp that was right up there in red blinky land up in the extreme right top corner. I definitely had variations with a native lens and no variations with a non-native lens when swapping between matrix and centre-weighted on the E-PL5.

Next try possibly tonight (10 hours away) I'll use different legacy and native lenses and a more careful setup with a brighter, smaller lamp further right up into the corner and try all of spot/matrix/centre weighted again. Plus of course I can try E-PL5, E-P3 and E-PL1 to see if any one of them behaves differently.

Regards.... Guy
