Since you have auto ISO turned off and you're choosing your shutter speed and aperture yourself, I think you're under exposing the image.

This is bright daylight sunny f16 rule sorta stuff. And I had two lenses exposing one scene differently (on different cameras so that's why I thought something was going on in camera).

Personally, I've learned to trust my (DSLR) camera meters and dial in + or - based on the overall tones of whats in the viewfinder (keeping in mind each body's tendency with certain scenes) and use Auto ISO.
