Pen F Light Meter

  1. I just picked up a couple of Pen F light meters. Both work, but I was
    wondering if someone could clarify the operation. The button on the right side
    obviously turns the meter "on". But it appears to have a dual function.
    Pushing it half way in takes the reading, pushing it the whole way in is the
    battery check. Is this correct?

    On one of the meters, the needle is stuck half way in and it is always on.
    This is actually kind of convenient. On the other meter there is about a one
    stop range of uncertainty between when the meter first reacts and when it
    obviously swings to the battery check. Is this typical? Do you just have to
    develop a "feel" for where half way really is?

    One final point. The shutter speed number on the meter does not line up
    exactly with the arrow when the camera's shutter speed dial clicks into its
    detent. Can this be adjusted?
