Try setting b6 'fine tune exposure' - should take care of your problem.

I think my D800E has read all the books on ETTR It always seems to overexpose the image (in my taste) when I use any of the metered modes. I run with a near-permanent -1EV exposure compensation to avoid clipping.

ETTR is useful with my Canon bodies, but not with the D800. Strange.

It helps that the D800 has the deepest DR I've seen on a digital body, and I can lift shadows that would have descended into pure noise on a Canon. I think that DR makes ETTR much less important.
