    Re: Primes vs Telephoto lenses

    Not sure but its often easier to recover underexposed rather than over, with my olympus i tend to use spot metering tied to my focus point.

    For the types of images I shoot, I found myself overriding the metering far too many times when the camera was in Matrix metering. Now I shoot with center weighted metering. Mike's suggestion of Spot metering is also good. Not sure if Nikon bodies can be set to offer spot metering associated to a single point, but I've never looked into it. Try a different method of metering and see if that helps.

    Modern telephoto's are getting quite good, even the more inexpensive ones. The sharpness of the Sigma 150-600 Contemporary I picked up a few years ago is outstanding at a bargain at the cost of entry for such a vast focal range.

    Pixel peeping these photo's below @ 600mm should be an eye opener!

    I regularly shoot with spot metering, single point and AFS. It will meter at which ever focusing point you choose.

    I have faced a lot of difficulty with Matrix Metering. In my shots it is always over exposing the reds and blues in bright light, when you look at the Histogram on the computer. For daylight Fill Flash matrix metering works perfectly.
