There is an interesting essay on exposure here.

In it the author argues that setting  the "correct" exposure in the camera, using your choice of metering, is only important if you are shooting jpegs.

If you are shooting RAW, it is more important to set the exposure to load the sensor with the maximum amount of information available, and then to use the RAW development stage to map this data to the desired densities in the final print.

There was a huge discussion on this in the micro 4/3 forum spanning several threads.
