It's disputable. The world does not consist of 36% grey.

It's a creative thing: if you want (part of) the image darker than mid-range, give it less exposure. If you have a contrasty subject, set 'optimize image' to 'softer'.

It would be great marketing to have a Zone System function in a Digital camera!

Now where did my f:64 go ?
