Experiments with Nikon D600 exposure - seems too aggressive

Re: It did

Not necessarily designed to

I agree it's not designed for that unfortunately.

(If your D600 does protect highlights I would like to know that.)

When you went back and examined just how much detail could be pulled out of the raw files in your examples...you metering did exactly that in many ways.

For now I don't agree. From what I've seen the D600 did not 'go out of its way' to protect the highlights. The fact that the highlights were not lost appears to be a testament to the sensor's range, an "accident," and not really about the meter's avoidance of blown highlights. At least it seems that way based on what I've seen so far. Maybe I'm wrong, in which case, so much the better!
