It's probably just because it's overcast, but I feel like I'm constantly conflicted with either losing detail in my blacks or blowing out the sky. It seemed to me that with the d40x I used to have, it was less of a problem and it had a broader dynamic range. If I meter for the sky, everything else is going to turn black on me, but if I overexpose by even like a 1/3 EV I end up with blown skies. I'm getting frustrated because I'm losing a whole lot of pictures, and I'm not really into bracketing every single picture for HDRs. Question: Is it just "that time of year" and I have to deal with it? Was the d40x known to have higher dynamic range than the d80? Will a polarizer help keep my skies in check (even with clouds)?
