Went shooting Sunday with the D800E and was wondering why all pics reviewed in the LCD were so damned dark. Camera was set up in full manual mode @ ISO 100, and I was working like crazy to meter a scene so that the exposure was correct. Either the shutter speed or aperture had to be set to numbers that I knew were just plain wrong.

And then after about 30 shots I came to realize that the EV was previously set to -1.7.

Lightroom 5.3 saved the day with most of the pics.

I think I need an entry level camera.......NOT!!

I thought EV compensation only worked on auto modes...
