thanks for the reply. I'm glad that you don't consider it a major issue!

I shoot mainly on Sony gear and the advice they give seems to be "light your scene" and then use gray cards and zebras to make sure exposure is set correctly. Of course the people I talk to are sales and consultants - not so many DP.

I was at another meeting (mainly broadcast camera people) where one topic discussed was their lack of enthusiasm for the dslr cameras. Not that there was anything wrong with the camera but rather those cameras are used fully open and producers like that look. So they feel pressured to shoot with the lens wide open even though they don't feel it gives them the best picture.
