Is there a trick here that I'm not doing? I always shoot RAW.

The "trick" is nothing more complicated than to learn how to meter accurately with the aid of the histogram, adjusting EV compensation appropriately. Then it doesn't really matter which lens you use.

+1... I think John's got it right. Several lenses have similar transmisivity issues to your 16mm, especially when you add filters like a polarizer or converters like the 16mm's UWA or fisheye.

How far off are your images? I haven't seen a huge error with my 16mm.

They look about a stop to 1 1/2 under usually.
