It would be cool if firmware allowed provision for callibrating the meter to your own personal setting. Would this be something that could be done relatively easily back at Leica? I could just live with it but I just don't like investing so much for a camera when it is not quite right. Yes I could leave the EV set to -2 stops but then I have only one stop more if I have a situation where I need a couple stops down in compensation. Hey, I guess I do have 5 instead of just three stops up for + compensation.
maybe its the grey card? have you tried testing the same shot one with grey card and one just exposing on your subject?
