How can I be bracketing when I press the button once and I only get one image? No, not bracketing in any of the profiles. And yes, I have reset all the profiles back to defaults.
As I said before, all the images from 24mm to about 58 mm are perfect. Then at 62 mm up to 70 mm, the pictures are wildly overexposed. How could that be bracketing or user profiles? Doesn't matter whether I'm spot metering, matrix or center-weighted.
I'll have to resize all the images to post. After resizing them once, I posted them to Nikon support using their software to maintain metadata. Then they requested I box both camera and lens and send to Melville, which I did. But it looks like no one at Nikon hooked up my lens to my camera and took any pictures. They just ran it through their little tests and declared it met factory specs.
