    Actually two questions:

    1. I'm assuming since there is no viewfinder that the three LEDS on the back are the meter indicators? Under/Correct/Over

    2. Given this camera is designed for wide angle shooters and has no rangefinder or viewfinder, one would assume said user is going to be using a handheld meter ... and more than likely a tripod (although I'd shoot blind handheld with it :smile: ) .. anyhow the question is why include a TTL meter system at all?

    Q1: Yes.
    Q2: For use with accesory viewfinders. A very attractive mode of street photography when you're in the thick of the crowd:[​IMG]
