    Metering has nothing to do with Focussing.
    They are separate systems within the camera.

    Auto metering refers to the camera making part or all of the metering decisions for you. e.g. Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Program modes.

    Some manual FOCUS cameras have autometering.

    Modern lenses can communicate the aperture setting of the lens (for metering) via electronic or mechanical linkage .

    No diff.. If your lens doesn't have a A-M switch, you'll need to use the one on the body to retract the AF drive shaft (in the case of a Nikon system).
