Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

True and it worked very well in my experience when used with slide film. With b+w however the requirements are a bit different as it's important to expose sufficiently if you want to retain shadow detail. If I recall correctly the shadow metering point on the OM-4 was 2.67 stops below the "average exposure" which was sometimes too little to keep good details in the shadows. The in-camera metering on the OM-4 (and OM-3) was pretty much the equal of a hand-held spot exposure meter though .
