Amazing how "correct" exposures are then.

Works wonders, doesn't it?

P.S. I currently have the FujiFilm X Pro 1. This camera offers a choice of Multi, Spot or Average(full) metering modes. Interestingly enough, the manual suggests using the averaging mode for landscapes, and this does indeed result in a distinct lack of blown highlights!
