I like the F5 a lot but not the matrix meter. I found that it underexposes color negative film (and I would guess the same for B&W) when in high contrast situation. But to its credit, would give good exposure for slides in the same situation. In flat lighting it's ok. So using a fixed exposure compensation would not fix it. So I quit using the matrix meter also.
