Metering

Btw, I have the D800e: a truly excellent camera with an autofocus system not really designed for 36mpix and a matrix metering I do not like (using manual most of the time).

I've never liked Matrix metering.  I have used Center-weighted metering set to "Average" on my D200 and D300 and it has delivered consistent exposures from both cameras under a variety of circumstances (i.e., not always 100% accurate, but very predictable).  I'm not sure what you mean by "manual" metering, but I often use Manual Exposure mode when the light is stable regardless of how I have metered the shot.
