M Lens with Matrix Metering...

Uh Oh.

I forgot to switch the Metering on my MZ-5n from Matrix to Centre Weight while using an M lens. I'm 21 images into a 36 exp roll. Anyone know off hand what results I'll get once I finish?

i doubt any big difference unless you shoot a lot of scenes with high contrast
especially if it's negative film

Thanks K100D, In the camera right now is a roll of Delta 100, 21/36 exposures in so far. I've switched it to CW, I'll find out early next week I guess
