Hi, I have taken the first images yesterday with my DP2M and I love very much that camera...but it seems to me that it underexpose one half to one stop, don't you think?

I have read such suggestion before. And I even overexposed my first batch of DP2M pics by one step, but most of those had either unrecoverable overexposure or were a very borderline case. Now I usually shoot at neutral exposure or 1/3 step either way. I guess it somewhat depends on how one focuses exposure.

A stop over is slightly too much I think, for ISO 100 anyway - there I usually go +0.7.

For ISO 200 a stop or slightly more works well.

In that first shot you posted, I can see where +0.3 would have worked out better since there was a lot of dark area to balance out the highlights.
