    Incorrect.

    Actually all the information on center weighted metering posted is incorrect.

    Center weighted metering has an inner circle and an external region. BOTH are metered but 70-80% of the evaluation by the light meter is performed on the inner circle. The exact diameter of the circle varies from camera to camera as does the amount of weighting applied.

    Some cameras such as Nikons Professional series F5, F6, D2, D3 series have adjustable diameter center circles.

    emmmm I still need to check out whether it is in the center of the frame of follows the focus point.

    however you are right about the adjustable diameter. Nikon D90 also has this function. can be adjust to 8mm or 10mm

    thx
