Mi'y'a thinks (Methinks, for Shakespeare lurkers), that there is 
so much absurd in longish deliberations about shutter inaccuracies,
that all this thread is worth whole lot than nothing.

Despite matrix meters and unbelievable CPU-s built into contemporary
cameras, we still have to use our own CPU, built between our ears and 
compensate 1,2 even 4 or more stops in each direction, according to
our experience. This is actually as precise as using woodworker's axe
compared to 0.1% shutter inaccuracies...
