Metering
TTL exposure metering using 1,005-pixel RGB sensor
Metering method
• Matrix: 3D color matrix metering II (type G and D 
lenses); color matrix metering II (other CPU lenses); 
color matrix metering available with non-CPU lenses 
if user provides lens data
• Center-weighted: Weight of 75% given to 12 mm circle 
in center of frame. Diameter of circle can be changed 
to 8, 15, or 20 mm, or weighting can be based on 
average of entire frame (non-CPU lenses use 12-mm 
circle or average of entire frame)
• Spot: Meters 4 mm circle (about 1.5% of frame) 
centered on selected focus point (on center focus 
point when non-CPU lens is used)
Range (ISO 100, f/1.4 
lens, 20 °C/68 °F)
• Matrix or center-weighted metering: 0–20 EV
• Spot metering: 2–20 EV
