d200 help me with focus and metering


i 'm a canon shooter , i used to shoot with 5d mark 2

i have now a d200 and i'm playing with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor Nikon 85mm f/1.4D IF AF Nikkor and Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor and i liked the camera even it's noisy and i like to play with these lenses

first i reset all the settings and i start to read the manual and try to understand settings

i have the manual , but honeslty i got lostin the settings menu and in the manual

may i ask some question ?


when i click the shutter button ,i did notice that the camera continues to metering (i'm using automatic focus right now i have the 50mm mounted)?

is it normal? with my canon locks metering and focus when i click the shutter


in matrix , i tried to focus to a dark (low light ) targetmething with a light background , i got the target underexposed

can someplease help me ?

have a nice day
