another canon 5dmk1/5d classic question-expose to the right?

i'm am finding myself drawn to an older neighbors canon 5d classic. he had canon service the mirror in 2015. it looks very clean and even has original boxes ;-). he is selling it for a very reasonable price.

my question after days of looking at web images produced by the 5d classic:

i was hoping a 5d classic user would share their exposure thinking?

it seems like with the 5d classic you can overexpose a touch since the light roll-off is quite lovely.

using a histogram, expose to the right?

if so, how far?

what other insights can be provided as to camera set-up, custom profiles, focusing or anything else i am too newbie to ask?

thanks in advance for any info you care to share.

thumbs up.
