I think there is far more variation in individual cameras than you
suspect.

I own a 300D and in automatic modes which I never use, it always
significantly UNDER exposes. So much so I suspected the camera was
defective when I bought it. TO be honest I still do, but I have
learnt to compensate.

When I borrowed a friends 400d and tried it on every mode I could
find, I found no problems with it at all. It consistently did an
excellent job of exposing in any reasonable situation. it was much
BRIGHTER than my 300D in same circumstances.

My conclusion....

My 300D is not a very good example
My friend has a good example of a 400D

I shall buy a 400D next year and hope it is as good as his, but it
does seem to be pot luck.....

My second 400D is about half a stop brighter than the first one.
