I suggest you don't use exposure compensation but learn about custom curves for the D100. It requires the use of Capture software but the sophistication you gain is well worth the cost. Once you get thought the learning curve you'll love this camera.

FWIW I got my D100 four weeks ago from Guild camera in Phoenix for $1449. Ritz may be cheaper but I'd rather spend my money at a locally owned shop.

thanks for all you input ! i love the camera! photos have great color, and this thing is fast even without an AF-S lense. i was able to snap shots quickly during a parade at disneyland. i used mostly the aperture an shutter priority modes during my trip there.

Default I bought mine on Saturday

From Ritz Camera. To match a competitor at this time I paid 1389.00 plus the shipping of the competitor (24.00) and 2 day Fedex air all for 1430.00. I cant complain about that.

If you are in the market for a D100. Take a look at Broadway Photo. http://www.bwayphoto.com/product.asp?id=nkd100
Broadway Phono also had the Battery grip for $249.00 which I wanted with the Camera. Your best bet for Lenses is to go to either B&H: http://www.bhphotovideo.com or Adorama: http://www.adorama.com as they have the best selection (IN Stock) In any case, hope this info helps.

Happy Holidays...

I tend to find that apperture priority with matrix metering works well as a default without any exposure compensation. As I'm satisfied with the results I havn't experimented with Curves, yet.

pspeyer, Glad to hear that you're enjoying using your D100. It's a lovely camera, particularly in the colour rendition department. Have fun !
