This is why I always leave the EV set to zero. It's just too easy to forget you have adjusted it, and you end up ruining a whole series of shots.

When I want to change the exposure from what the camera would choose, (like pushing the histogram to the right), I always switch to manual mode and adjust shutter or aperture.

I think EV should be used only when the camera is continually under or overexposing, to bring it back where it should be.
