But the metering in the Leica was not designed for spur of the moment
shooting, Ted's success with it notwithstanding.  It is *selective*
metering, which means in general you must be selective in what you meter.
In my case, this means finding something in the scene, or nearby to meter
off of, set the exposure, and then begin shooting, perhaps many exposures,
before worrying about changing the exposure.

I'm not certain how to do this easily in an M7.
