Using full multi-segment metering, the camera handles a range of scenes with ease. For some situations I opted to expose to the right using the histogram display, which involved increasing the exposure by up to 1EV.

However, the sensor loses highlights quite easily, so creating the slightly darker images presented by the metering was usually preferable.

With high-contrast scenes or specific effects I had to adjust the exposure compensation by up to 1 stop in either direction. This kind of compensation is to be expected, and with such a wide adjustment range on the dial I was free to add as much creative input as I wanted.
