center of frame. Diameter of circle can be changed to 
6, 10, or 13 mm, or weighting can be based on 
average of entire frame (fixed at 8 mm when non-
CPU lens is used)
• Spot: Meters 3-mm circle (about 2% of frame) 
centered on selected focus point (on center focus 
point when non-CPU lens is used)
