can lens affect the camera's meter? or is it more likely that I've just gotten better at watching for the highlights?
I was looking though some pics I took with the 18-55 IS kit lens, and there seemed to be a general tendency to have blown out skies in many of my outdoor shots.
I now have the 15-85 and compared a number of the shots with that lens and in general, the sky and lighter objects seem less prone to being overexposed.
not complaining about the camera or lenses - just more kind of curious if that's a possibilty. I don't think I'm paying any more attention to the exposure than i did before - but then again, maybe it's become habitual. My thinking is that the meter is what it is, and it meters on the light that hits it - lenses should have no effect correct? i mean if light hits the sensor - light hits the sensor.
