    Hi all,
    I have set up in my body the exposuer lock button... as I wanted to give it try. Could you please inform me when you find it useful to lock the exposure?

    I would like to thank you for your replies

    I usually lock exposure if I want to "focus and recompose," and having the exposure locked to the object in focus would cause the whole picture to be over- or underexposed.

    Also useful when taking multiple shots to be stitched into a panorama. Keeping all the shots at the same exposure to guarantee consistency.
