... which is why you need to work with them and understand them. Understanding your subject and how light/exposure is effects it is one of the skills we have to learn. I leave my k7 set on the spot focus setting so I can pick THE point to focus on, compose and shoot. I use the spot metering the same way, to get the area I want properly exposed and then determine how to adjust from there. I have been setting exposures using handheld and in camera meters for so long it is now second nature.
