What did I do wrong
Jun 2, 2013

Hi all. I may not be able to post pictures for a while but here is what happened. Using my 70-200 2.8 for a dance show indoors for the first time. Had it set to 1/400 2.8 and auto iso. Metered off the dancers and the camera was choosing a high iso and the pictures were blown out. So I dropped took it off iso auto down to about iso 3200 the meter was showing say -3 underexposure yet the pics turned out well. Is this the lens?  I have used the lens outdoors and indoors and never had this happen but this is the first time seeing this issue.  So basically here it is

1. m mode auto iso 1/400 2.8 camera selected some shots iso 8000 picture blown out

2. Exact same focus point choseN this time I set iso 3200 meter reads very underexposed. Pictures fine
