X-Pro1 images dark (underexposed)


Since I bought the X-pro1 last summer I had the impression I needed a long shutterspeed/high iso/large aperture for the present ligth conditions. I considered it was just me and the images where great so I didn't think much of it. However this issue became more apparent when I used for lightmetering before shooting on film. The roll of film came out overexposed.

After this I performed some tests; I used a lightmeter and photographed a greycard using those exposure values.

I've used the same shutterspeed, ISO and aperture on my X-pro1 and Canon 40D. De X-pro 1 shots came out about 3/4th stop darker then my 40D shots!:-(

Same results at all ISO settings. Both on the 35mm and 18mm.

To rule out the posibility of an calibration error with the aperture I did the same thing using a flash. No difference though.

Does anyone have a similar experience or any thoughts on the issue?
