AE Metering - K-3 versus K-5 IIs.
8 months ago

Hi folks,

When I was doing the compare K-3 versus K-5 IIs the other day using identical lenses I had to adjust the EV on the K-5 IIs to -0.7 to get the same shutter speed at a given aperture and ISO as compared to the K-3.

Apparently for a given aperture and ISO I get the same exposure if I set the AE Metering on the K-5 IIs to Center while the K-3 is set to Matrix. I checked this a few times in the house and a few times outside using identical lenses.

If they are both set to Matrix then I have to adjust the K-5 IIs to -0.7 to get the same shutter speed at a given aperture and ISO setting.

Would someone care to check my findings?
