New D100 User Observation/Question
Pardon me in advance if this is a silly question, anyway...
I'm new to the group, just signed on, and just received my new D100 this past weekend. Something intrigued me regarding the D100's metering and I decided to compare it to my F100. Using the same lens on both bodies and metering on identical subject, it appears the D100 is a couple of stops slower than the F100. Is it because the size of the CCD is smaller than 35mm film? Smaller surface, less light registering?

Congratulations on joining and your D100 purchase.
The size of the CCD will have no effect on exposure. I find it very interesting that you see this much difference between the two meters. This should not be the case.
Have you primarily shot print or slide film with your F100, and were you getting good exposures from it? I have to belive that each mater is off somewhat in the opposite direction from each other.

What speed film are you using in your F100, and what ISO do you have your D100 set on. If not the same, this could easily account for the observed discrepency.

Oh good grief...
In my haste/enthusiam, it never occurred to me to me to check the ISO setting. I'm sure it's at 200 and my F100 was loaded with 400 speed film. Oh, the F100 takes superb pictures. Will check again this eve.
