I don't know for sure but probably as 160. I would not use the internal meter or the internal filter. Disengage the filter and meter manually at one stop over.

just looked it up. It will meter at 400 for the 500t and it does have a 150 degree shutter. My previous statement still stands though. One stop over using an external meter.

What amazes me is that I read on forums that it was going to be read at 250 ASA. To know I looked at the aperture with the vacuum camera and with the 500t cartridge and I have the same result (with the filter removed) is this a good way to know?
