As sophisticated as they are I think the D3 and D700 would benefit greatly by having an EV setting that could lock the shutter speed and aperture taken manually that would allow us to spin the control wheel for more creative use of depth of field.
Where time permits I am now using my calibrated light meter but it it so frustrating when say I have a reading of 250 @f13 but want to use F2.8 I would need to be autistic to reset my camera quickly. The present way of taking the hand held light meter reading and scrolling thru the shutterspeed/aperture combinations is just too time consuming. I would have thought that with such high end cameras it would be a very welcome feature.
