Please educate me on stop down metering.
8 months ago

Can you please correct me on this topic?  What I have understood is:

1. Set the desired aperture on the lens.

2. Set the shutter speed or half press the shutter release button so that the camera will decide the shutter speed.

3. Fully depress the shutter release to take the picture.

If this is the case, what is the difference between a stop down metering and a normal Aperture priority exposure.  The above exercise is what we do with every lens in Aperture priority mode. I can't really figure out the difference between a lens which requires stop down metering and a lens which does not.

Please point out where I am wrong.  Thanks for your answers.
