I think you've got short menus turned on - here's something you can try: Press the MENU button, then choose the wrench icon. The second choice is "CSM/Setup Menu". Select that by pressing the ENTER button. Now there are two choices; "Simple" or "Detailed". Select detailed and press "ENTER". Now you can see all the menu choices under the pencil icon. One of them is metering. Hope this takes care of it for you.

Another thing is make sure that exposure is NOT locked, ie. "EL" is not visible. The camera disables the Metering option on the menu if the exposure is currently locked.

Also, metering is only adjustable in P,A,S and M modes. In anyother shooting mode the metering menu is grayed out :-?

ps- The only stupid question is the one you don't ask....
