You're confusing METERING with FOCUSING. Yes it FOCUSES on one point , BUT meters for 52 points and averages that.
It does not average focus????

Ah, ok. Of course. This is embarrassing.

But if you're shooting manually (which I am currently trying to teach myself to do) then the metering is irrelevant?

Be brutal. I need to learn.


The metering is not affect the outcome of your image. In manual mode only you decide how you want the image to look like. However, the metering will still measure the exposure and give info in the viewfinder on how it want you to adjust ISO, aperture or shutter speed. That will be visible in the viewfinder looking at the exposure compensation.
