I have a D80 that has been working pretty flawlessly for me until I dropped it and broke the mounting bayonet bracket for the lens. I replaced the mounting bracket, remounted the lens, and now I'm getting massive over-exposure on daylight shots. I have tried resetting to defaults and changed some settings back and forth with no fix. I used to use green auto setting most of the time and it worked great until the news mounting bayonet was installed. I am not a camera person and some of the acronyms used on this site are confusing. The other threads havent been helpful for this reason. Right now the camera is set to default values (held both green buttons on top down to reset to default).

Here are some examples of what I'm talking about.

It worked like a charm on auto before the broken bayonet. I did buy this camera from a professional photographer so he may have had some settings that I am unaware of.

I don't know what any of the acronyms mean in camera talk so If you have any ideas please spell out the setting. Any help would be much appreciated! I am a real estate broker and my camera is very important to my business. Thanks again in advance!

Edit: The lens is a Nikon DX 18-135mm
