    Well the small size of the camera would make it convent for taking a meter reading to use on another camera.

    Hey, you're right. I have just looked out my OM-2n manual which I hadn't seen for over 25 years. I wonder how I'd got that into my head. Maybe I'm thinking of the OM-1.

    In automatic mode the readout in the finder is merely informational. The exposure in manual mode may be off while the automatic exposure is right. You don't even have to switch the meter on to get a correct exposure.

    With the proviso that the correct shutter speed is faster than 1/30 second, (or near to) and this saves battery, as you wont leave the camera on accidently.
