Wrong. It is about having reliable metering. When you put for example a TC on an. a series or later F2.8 zoom, the K10 will meter consistently 1 1/2 stops high . You have less than a second to see something push the green button and shoot. The moment is gone when you have to check the histogram, manually adjust aperture or shutter and shoot again.

That is the issue.
Totally agree. This is an issue.I do know how to use metering and exposure compensation and make it work but the fact that this is an issue could not be ignored. Thanks for your input guys.

No, because if you know that the metering is going to be consistently off by 1.5 stops, then you simply adjust one of the three parameters to be 1.5 stops different than normal after you've pushed the Green Button.

you missed the point, yopuu dont necessairly have time to do it!

the real issue for many is this is a feature pentax took away. you cold do it on the *istD.

in fact in many ways, the *istD had more real useful functions than any other camera

If you don't have time to make the parameter adjustment, then what are you doing shooting in Manual anyway? If you are using an old lens like a M42, you can shoot in Aperture priority mode then you can still have exposure compensation apply.

Perhaps some of us like to work on composition more and spend time on it rather than fiddling more with buttons... I always look at Aperture, Shutterspeed, WB, ISO, metering and EV in that order before I hit the trigger. Just because a camera is constantly underexposing and one needs to compensate for it on every shot and one can accomplish it consistently does not make someone a good or a bad photographer. End results matter and its all about composition, composition and composition in my book.
