    More correctly I should have stated that besides the Olympus OM's, the Pentax LX uses OTF on all exposures - manual, aperture priority autoexposure and TTL flash.

    Tim, The manual for the OM4T specifies an autoexposure of about 4 minutes - which is what I have managed to get on mine. So for the several minutes exposure you have gotten is that also autoexposure or just bulb?

    I wonder how it does OTF exposure in manual?

    Unlike the OM2 - which in manual mode has CDS in the viewfinder, the Pentax LX uses the same single SPC metering off the film plane.

    How is that possible? It can't open the shutter to measure in manual mode, can it? You would then expose the film while metering and adapting the settings...

    The Pentax LX when meter in manual doesn't measure the light off the film but rather via the piggy back mirror that reflects light to the sensor (similar to that of the Nikon F3)

    The patterned shutter curtain, rear-facing sensor and the two-part mirror, like the OM-2S, OM-PC, OM-4/ti and OM-3/ti?

    The design and technology was invented first by Olympus.

    Just sayin'...

    Having seen used prices for other pro-level SLRs the LX looks an absolute bargain. Although the accessories tend to be fiercely expensive thanks to one or two ebay dealers artificially inflating the prices.

I have been doing this for a couple of years with no adverse effects and no battery drain on my OM bodies, I also do it with my OM2ns.
    Nikon's method seems superior.
