Re: 2 serious bugs with 3D tracking and metering

Like the others, I am not seeing the problem here. I set AF-C, 3D tracking, Spot metering. Move the focus point to the side of the frame. Put a bright object under the focus point, and a dark one under the center point. Observe metering is correct.

So no matter which mode you're in, IT IS METERING ON THE (INITIALLY) MANUALLY SELECTED FOCUS POINT. IT NEVER METERS ON THE CENTER POINT (UNLESS YOU SELECTED IT)!

Now I agree it's annoying that the metering point doesn't track along with 3D tracking, and I wish it did, but at least it's no worse than the other dynamic AF modes (on D200 or D300), for which metering did not track either.

What's the bug again?
