#9. "RE: I disagree"
In response to In response to 8

I agree, I have found the d7000's meter to be the most intuitive as it tries to balance the scene.

I think most are used to a MM that places a greater emphasis on the area under the focus point. In many scenes this may result in your "subject" being properly exposes but many other things in the scene being blown out or lost in the shadows. If you look at a d7k histogram it tries very hard to balance the entire scene to retain as much detail as possible in both the shadow areas and the highlights. This may not be your preference in a particular scene, but it is predictable. Ultimately you can use center weighted and spot metering for scenes where this behaviour is not desired.

I may add that any complaint that a camera CONSISTENTLY overexposes or underexposes by some fixed amount is extremely minor. What you want from a metering system is consistency and predictability. Make fine tune adjustments to the matrix meter is easy when you can set it to add or reduce exposure by a set amount each time.
