Quoting Nikon, "Since the imaging sensor constantly streams data for
the LCD display during Live View operation, the mirror must be
continuously held up while Live View mode is being used."

So I doubt Nikon is metering by the prism, but perhaps some light
can escape from the prism past the mirror while it's in the up
position. That would be consistent with reports I've seen about
long exposure photography with the D7100.
