6D Mark II C.Fn I: Exposure Meter.mode, AE locked after focus

I understand from the review (Canon 6D Mark II setup for wildlife photography) by Grant Atkinson that this is a new metering option.

 

How have you used it?

I use Av almost all the time.  So, no, I have not explored any 'new' options.

EB
EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Here is my understanding of this custom function. 

 

If I check "spot" metering for AE locked after focus, then I can lock the exposure when the shutter button is pressed halfway to focus.  Then I can recompose the image using AE (perhaps evaluative) and Auto ISO.  The new compostion will now register new AE and Auto ISO.

 

With my test images I discovered that a very bright background with a dark object in the foreground can both be captured and will show details.  Without this AE lock after focus, the very bright background is blown out when I focus on the dark object in the foreground. 

 

As anyone else played around with this?

Thanks for the link.  Rudy has written a detailed and clear article.
