Glad you found ...

the culprit. I did not know about the D-lighting thing. I do not plan to use it, as I shoot NEF, and D-lighting is better done in post IMO, but it can be useful for jpg shooters.

Yes, this LV feature is amazing: you can do a critical focus on the extreme corner of a picture if you want, then press OK and check a live histogram and a good LCD representation of the image set to your ISO/shutter/aperture combination. If you press OK again, after adjusting for best exposure, you're back to the "convenience Live view" in the absence of a proper term, where the image brightness is automatically adjusted through gain, for the purpose of framing and focus.

Have lots of fun.
