As for exposure. That is one thing I definitely cannot complain about
at all. I get what I want more often than ever with this cam. I
mostly use manual mode, but I feel I can really trust this in camera
metering. I find that if I do blow the exposure, it is usually toward
the underexposed side.

.. that's what has me just a bit confused. I've had some very good results 'out of camera', and some not so good - the flash results had me scratching my head. I was thinking the backyard bird images were pretty good; no exposure problem here .. and then I checked the EXIF and saw the exposure compensation value .. go figure .. ?

To be truthful, I've probably only shot 200 + - shots with my D300 - still playing with the various AF/exposure options - so I don't have a good feel for the camera yet (I think it took me a year with the D100 .. I'm a slow learner .. ) - but I am starting to think about the possibility of needing a custom curve to tone things down just a bit .. I was curious if anybody else was starting to think the same ..
