Has anyone addressed the SPOT metering issue as well....I think you
said you were using SPOT....Did you lock in the exposure if so?? If
not that will blow the scene big time...
On my monitor the birds pics look dark compared to other shots on the
forum.

Or were you using matrix??

.. as noted in the original post, I was using Continuous focus mode, Spot metering, with Dynamic Area Mode (9 points). Why do you think using Spot metering will blow the scene, if the 'spot' was dead-on the bird .. ??

re. 'dark birds', my monitor is calibrated (Spyder II) and they look fine to me, but maybe I like them darker than you ...
