    I guess you didn't see my earlier post. You can meter with "R" lens attached to your F-1, but it will be stopped-down metering, not full aperture metering, like you get with a FD lens. With a battery installed, turn on the camera's meter and set your desired shutter speed. Then turn the secondary aperture ring on your "R" lens (there are two aperture rings) and, as the viewfinder darkens, the meter needle along the right side of the viewfinder will move up or down. When this needle intersects the black index mark, whatever you're photographing has been properly metered and you can now press the shutter button.

    Not the most convenient way of metering, but it does work.

    Some metal bodied cameras tend to resonate and amplify the shutter sound. I've had it on Nikons, Canons, Yashica, etc. Pro models like the F1 seem to do it less because of better damping but none are completely immune, although I never recall my OM1 pinging. Some audibly ring for a few seconds afterwards, which can be irritating. Plastic bodied cameras are less prone, generally speaking, to the dreaded ding. My theory is the pressure plate acts as sounding board for the stop down lever or mirror mechanism. Film tension damps the springs in the plate, reducing resonance. If it's any consolation, some rangefinders are equally subject to shutter ring.
