Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

IMHO, it's a bit pointless on a mirrorless camera with LiveView. If you turn on the over/under exposure indicators in the display ("blinkies") then you can easily see what parts of the image will be under or over exposed. Spin the exp comp dial (or adjust shutter speed and f-stop in manual mode) until the balance looks right.

Multi-spot metering was useful in the SLR days when you couldn't preview the exposure until the film came back from processing, but it's really not necessary with liveview.
