It is true, and one of the reasons my ME Super used to be my 'low-light' camera, that the ME Super LEDs are very visible in low light. Which is a good thing, since you need to be able to see them to know what shutter speed is set. With my OM, I can tell the shutter speed by feel. Most of the time when I shoot manual, I'm ignoring what the meter tells me anyway. In fact the meter on my OM2 is wrong anyway, so you have to ignore it.
