Did I get a lemon R5?
1

So, I've had the camera for a few days now, and it seems like it is constantly underexposing compared to my 5D or any other camera I had before it. This is my first mirrorless, so I'm not sure if this is they way they generally work, or if this is as bad as it feels.

This is what I've noticed:

The simulated exposure on the screen is always brighter than the actual photo.

The histogram is almost always pushed to the left third unless I add 1/3 - 1 stop of exposure adjustment.

Playback of the photos is always brighter than the actual image.

Converting them to DNG and opening them in Lightroom make them even darker. I am still generally pushing another 1/3 to half stop in Lightroom.

Will a camera reset do anything for this, or does it need to go back to Canon?
