Re: When does exposure metering occur?

Metering occurs at the point of half press and stays active for the duration you've set it to stay active for in the custom menu (Meter operation time) It likely also stays active so long as the shutter button is half pressed so even if the meter operation time is set to something like 1 second but you half press for 5 seconds it should still be actively metering for the whole time you half press.
