Does anyone know why metering manual lenses in manual mode on consumer grade DSLR cameras does not happen/work?
It seems to me the hardware is there and all that is required is the visual display and firmware to do it? I'm not even suggesting a manual lens database like on the higher end cameras. Just a simple light meter display like on the old SLRs.
I get the feeling this is a deliberate removal so people are forced to buy a more expensive camera if they wish to use the older lenses. I don't like to think that and I'm wondering if there could be a better reason?
