Re: Help me understand my D800E's metering

Thanks so much for the thoughts guys, and I am very glad it doesn't seem to be an issue with the camera.  I love this combination so much, and the body otherwise is perfect (dead on focus with no fine adjustment needed) etc.  The beauty of this camera is that even when the image isn't perfect out of the camera, the files are so easy to PP it is a joy.  I love being able to tweak to my heart's content without having to fear the pattern noise that plagued my 5D2.

For reference, I am using LR4 with the Adobe Standard color profile.  I have tried other profiles and have tried using a Colorchecker to build custom profiles, but Adobe Standard seems to give me the best overall accuracy other than the reds being a bit oversaturated and magenta.

I will try the various metering ideas suggested.  Thanks again!
