Not all of the deficiencies of the F750exr shot can be explained by the inappropriate exposure settings.

I have the -.67 EV but decided to post the -.33 EV because it looks better overall, although the -.67 has better blue sky. No real difference in the items you pointed out, Rachotilko.

An observation is that my F750 seems to auto-correct in-camera super wide angle (25mm equivalant) better than the zoom values just above. Guess I should try that setting.

The F200EXR has a larger sensor, so doesn't it gather more light at identical exposure settings? I can't otherwise explain why the new F models overexpose so much in comparison.

Fuji changed the metering over time to expose more for the shadows. The F200 (same as F100 before) has a conservative  metering, meaning it is very hard to overexpose. This test just proves to me (viewed full size) that F200 is a classic never to be repeated again by Fuji.
