Hi I own a D7100 and have by now shot few thousand photos. I love the camera and it takes stunningly good photos (color/sharpness) But I think it underexposes lightly by - a third to - two third f-stops.

First, when you say it underexposes, how are you coming to that conclusion? Not doubting you but there are so many factors. Are you shooting in LiveView? How does the Histogram compare? What metering/exposure mode are you using. So many variables. Have you actually checked the accuracy of the meter using the sunny16 rule or such?

If you have an example to post with full EXIF....it will be easy to tell if you have an issue. Make sure it's not processed in any way but simply an OOC JPEG.

Has anyone had similar "problems" with their D7100? How easy is it to fix? I still have my one year warranty.

Not something reported here often. D7100 doesn't seem to be problematic regards exposure. Good Luck
