    First post, guys, please go easy.

    I'm experiencing a problem using AEL on my new EM5ii.

    Sometimes, I select spot metering and 'wander' round the scene, looking for a good exposure level. When I find the best looking exposure, I want to lock it there and then recompose.

    However, when I press AEL the exposure jumps up a few stops as if actually 'cancelling' my previous spot meter reading.

    Can anyone point to the root of the problem?
