with either K or M42 lenses, the camera has only spot and center weighted.

Matrix metering is better for scenes with high contrast or bright spots because the camera has a better chance of deciding to ignore one or the other.

You can still work using spot metering, which is probably the best in tough to meter situations any way
Hmm maybe I should not get the Katzeye then, heard that messes up spot..haha....
