Any comments gents ?
Anup Sir, you mean to say , some lens will underexpose or over expose a picture, yet showing correctly exposed in camera meter?I would consider it logical that since an SLR views things 'through the lens' its metering and any other function would depend on the lens entirely.
No, the frame should not turn out under or over exposed. If it does then the metering is not quite doing its job! The camera meter should show correct exposure of what is viewed through the lens that is in use.Anup Sir, you mean to say , some lens will underexpose or over expose a picture, yet showing correctly exposed in camera meter?
Yes YS I agree. each lens is different. even aperture ratings are not consistent.Each lens is different, some under expose, some over. Aperture mentioned on lens isn’t consistent across the board either; it varies from lens to lens. That is why you have to learn your gear and work accordingly.
Thats what I thought Henry...No. Lens does not affect light metering.
Yes the focal length which gives different field of view will affect light metering.
Consider incident light meter, it does not have lens but a dome instead.
Light meter is only concerned with the amount of light falling on its sensor.
This is what I know.
