Actually, I am interested in it so far as it pertains to my G2.

Reading up on my camera today, I learned (per "service manual") that the K factor for the Contax G2 metering system is 1.3.

I researched "K factor" and ran into all sorts of the type of mathematics I spent my youth avoiding.

From my reading, I reached the unsteady conclusion that the meter in my Contax registers 1/3 stop brighter than the scene really is. (Assuming an 18% gray, 45 degree light, etc.)

Is my understanding of this correct? Should I have the exposure compensation dial at -1/3, or do I have this backwards? Please advise. Thanks for the help up front, and I will check back in the a.m. Rich.
