Mt Spokaine, I also use the histogram 4 exposure but in difficult back or side light even though the exposure falls within the histogram the shadows may not be as filled as I would like & due to the necessary loc of the LCD screen it's often smeared & very difficult to view any accurate detail in sunny conditions even with me leaning over to provide shade.
Pete, I think you know this, but the brightness of the LCD screen will change the apparent exposure, and it changes brightness according to ambient conditions. Thats why I suggested that you do not use it judge exposure. Unfortunately, in bright conditions with lots of backlighting, its really tough. I bought a D800 to try out, and thats one area where the better DR really made a difference, in fact, I was amazed at the ability to properly expose shaded areas and not blow out a bright summer sky. Unfortunately, its the entire system that does not quite measure up to my expectations.
