    I understand that when auto focus is used the focus point been used is the centre of the exposure. Can any one help explain what part of the viewfinder is used for evalutative exposure when manual focus is used and no point of focus is available.

    Exposure is not affected by point of focus. Not familiar with Canons, but most cameras will allow you to choose between Spot ie measure exposure from a single point; Centre Weighted & Evaluative which averages the exposure over the whole frame making due allowance for extreme highlights & shadows.

    As you say in evaluative mode, metering is linked to the active focus point, don't know about manual focus?

    Would like to know myself.
