After commenting on Elly's post about over exposure, someone asked me to post an example. Here are two photos my wife and I took only a few minutes apart. She was shooting a D5000 16-85mm lens, I had the D7000 with the Sigma 17-50mm. Both cameras set to A priority, matrix metering. D5k set to auto ADL. D7k set to Low ADL. Both set to Standard picture control. Both shot in NEF and converted to jpeg in CNX2.
This is a good example of why I think the D7k exposes for dark areas more than bright areas. We did use different focal lengths and we were not in the exact same place when we took the photos but it does show how the two cameras handle high contrast situations IMO. I don't experience this all the time, I have gotten some great exposures of the sky in landscape shots with the D7k but I think because we were in a shaded area and the inside of the bridge was dark the D7k blew out the sky. Am I wrong? What should I have done to prevent this?

BTW, both focus points were on the word "bridge" above the arch.
