Re: Abd D750 Is this normal? Metering button acting up.


I noticed that the D3s showed Matrix metering without a lens while my D3 went to either spot or center, but never to Matrix without a lens even if Matrix metering was selected in the dial. Turns out the D3s had a non-cpu lens programmed. So the camera assumed there was a non-cpu lens attached. Once I programmed a lens on the D3 it did the same thing and when I removed it from the D3s it wouldn't show Matrix metering without a lens. Since my metering button was acting up, I thought that there was something else wrong with the camera instead of jus the button, so I was relived to find out this was perfectly normal.
