Anyone who has one that seems to be overexposing, how are you dealing with it? Last weekend I shot an event and set my custom settings so my camera always exposed -2/6 and while this helped, I still got some unexpected overexposes at times.

Yesterday evening, I set it back up to normal and then set my "Brightness" to -1 and took some shots of flowers (I normally always shoot people but for the test, yellow Lilly's seemed good) like that, a couple exact with the camera set at -2/6 again and then setting normal ADL.

I compared all the images using View NX and the ones I had shot with the brightness down -1 by far had less blown highlights when I looked at the images with the 'Show Lost Highlights' checked than the other two.

I love the camera but this is something I have to work out. Are others dealing with the problem on here? How are you doing it?
