Expose to the right to minimize noise

Re: it's because...

I agree with the technical point you are making here, and tried using EV=0.0 for a while on the R4, but I think it might be a bit too far to the right. It is difficult to determine this ideal exposure, where there may be a few blown highlights, as even at EV=-0.3 there can sometimes be a blown highlight if living in a very sunny country. In fact I find it makes sense in Australia to use EV=-0.3 in summer and Ev=0.0 in winter months. At the moment I have defaulted to EV=-0.3 as I suspect it gets close to this ideal that you are talking about.
