In bright sunny shots or green grass/trees overcast sky my d800 is consistently under exposing at least one stop while in matrix metering mode.

If I shoot my daughter in a quick portrait or shoot a rose in the shade of my garage, etc., all is well.

I shot a dam in 830 am sunlight and every exposure was under. I've never seen a nikon camera have a problem with that. Is this camera exposing differently than the D300/700?

Will you please check out a sample NEF I've uploaded?

Thanks for your help

John
