the shot looks fine although I'm not a fan of manicured grass

ev=-4.0 ?
I can't imagine that kind of light. I've never done -1
now positive EV I do a lot and sometimes as much as +2

it's almost always better to over than under expose

Not when you have blinkies all over the bird.

I love the details from that lens
Yes, it's really a nice lens.

I'm still not certain if I can let go of my 17-55 yet. I haven't had the opportunity to really put the focus speed to the test on the 16-80 in terms of shooting a challenging subject, and the 17-55 is a damn fast lens. It's just big, heavy, and lacks VR, so I'd rather take the 16-80 as long as it can "hold up" in terms of focus speed (IQ isn't a concern).

@DynaSport , have you tried highlight weighted metering at all? It may be worth giving that a shot versus using matrix metering and using a ton of exposure comp.
No I haven’t. But I don’t see what difference it makes how you get to the correct exposure. I generally start at 0 take a test shot, review the photo in highlights mode, and if there are blown highlights I adjust accordingly. It’s not difficult. Experience has shown me that on a sunny day taking a photo of a white bird requires at least -3 ec. Black birds require about +1 ec on average. Sometimes more depending on how bright the background is. Changing the metering method would probably change that, but proper exposure is proper exposure however you get there. To my mind anyway.

Headed out last evening with D500. Nothing particularly special, but it was good to shoot with the D500 after using the Z6 more recently.

Winter making a comeback from weather that almost felt like spring for a week

The D500 is a beast at the race track. A few shots of the factory Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GTE cars at Sebring this past weekend.
