I tried to setup the D800 with AE-L button for either Spot meter or AE-L hold on push and image area on dial ... it looks like it works but find it confusing that on the push of the bottom I only see the Image area displays, but no change in the metering indicating SPOT is used ...but when I do one shot in matrix and one with the button pushed = spot I clearly see the difference.. is this a nikon bug or just a problem with my D800 that neither SPOT nor AE hold are displayed when image area is on the dial function ?

Quite annoying but maybe one needs to just get used to it ?
