    I can't see what you see but I'm thinking I'm having less 'dark' photos...and I think it may be a result of not being married to 'Spot' metering for each and every shot like I had been...have been experimenting with 'Center' metering the last several days

    I was going to comment on that. Seems brighter and better detail coming through.

    And I have that little "histogram" graph now turned on in the lower right hand corner of the EVF...trying to condition myself to be aware of it and have it become 2nd nature...just plodding along the learning curve, LOL

    Very nice shot. I used to always use the level gauge but since I started using the histogram I don't think I could live without it :)

    I tried that level gauge but found it too intrusive / took up too much space / was a distraction.
    Found something called "grid lines"...which are very fine and I hardly know they're there, look right past them, etc...but they're a simple and big help if I want to check alignment on something in particular
