I don't know where you're at, but if you have snow in your winters, that's the best time to get used to the EC adjustment and see what it will do. Snow in full bright sun is a real test. I shot this in full blown sun.

Enable the EXIF at the bottom and note the exposure bias value (-2/3 EV). See how fast of a shutter speed it created, allowing the capture of all the detail in the bright snow.

I had actually thought of this on the drive in this morning.  Yes I have snow where I live.  So I'm going to wait for a bright sunny winter day, and do a bunch of trial shooting, playing with the EC adjustments, turning on/off the Auto Light Optimization, shooting in RAW vs JPG, etc.  Shooting on a sunny winter's day against snow will obviously be the ultimate in brightness and a good way to test adjustments of various settings.
