    this over exposing of exposure is based on a centre weighted metering
    others may be different.

    Since you are shooting digital

    shoot
    look at nice 2.5" lcd
    and plus or minus from there.

    2 x CF card
    1 x portable HDD storage.

    is the way to go.
    Just FYI with the VR turned on the camera needs more power and so your batteries will dry up faster, so judge from your shutter speed and focal lenght used to decide if you need the VR

    if you feel as such then buy el cheapo lor
    since you complain that the lenses are too heavy and you don't use it
    so why keep?

    investment in the dry box will only become dryer
    might as well use the money on something you actually use often.

    $1k but use 3 times in a year = $333 per use
    $1k but use 12 times in a year = $83.33 per use

    Maybe in 1 thousand years from now, it's antique....
    If don't use can preserve longer, therefore higher value when passed down to descendants.

    Oh... you are right...
    I forgot to mention I tend to use centre weighted and center focusing... instead of evaluative matrix.... Maybe thats why.

    Nice work Ortega for pointing that out...

    don't worry, you are not the one yet.

    if I see Ortega use wet blanket on someone, I would bring a bucket of ice cold water.
