Oh, come on. Are we so much less competent than our parents and grandparents that we cannot learn to use unmetered bodies? For that matter, what's wrong with separate, hand-held meters?

And what's wrong with a "learning curve"? The key word is "learning". Why not learn what you're doing instead of relying on a one-size-fits-all crutch in the shape of a built-in meter? A basic exposure guide such as http://www.rogerandfrances.com/subsc...expoguide.html ; few weeks; a few rolls of film; that's all you need and you're set for life.

Finally, who do you THINK buys unmetered cameras today? Do you think they're all professionals?

Cheers,
