If you don't want to ever use it don't get a camera that has it and try it then - it's addictive. I can shoot ALMOST as fast with my all manual MX or using my LX in manual mode - almost.

EDIT: Read your signature. I think the AE1 has it and I'm (almost) sure a 1V would.
1V certainly has it, I just don't know how to set it, it how to unset it, like I'm afraid if I push the AE Lock button I'll be stuck and then I can't UN-lock it, worse, I think it's locked but it's not. Either way, on film, I prefer not to try... I'm happy metering in manual or using my light meter
