Third party lenses tend to not get the proper exposure and most of the time they produce an overexposed photo. Obviously I'm talking when shooting in aperture or shutter priority. i mainly shoot in manual, but its frustrating not getting proper exposure if you are in a hurry and want to use A/S/P modes

In those modes nikon lenses expose properly, third party lenses overexpose by roughly 1 stop. I know i can set the exposure -1 in the camera but that would affect all lenses, including the nikon ones, in which case they would underexpose. Is there any way i can adjust -X exposure for particular lens only?

I use d7000.

It seems that it would be simple enough to dial the appropriate exposure compensation upon changing lenses.

Canon 5Ds R/7D2/7D/5D/40D/1D2N/M3; Nikon F6/D3s/D700/FM3A/1Dx/Coolpix A. Lens selection undergoing changes; some favorites: Zeiss 2/135 APO Sonnar, Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS and 135L, Nikkor 14-24/2.8G and 24-70/2.8G.

The D7000 has two "User" settings which can be easily selected from the Mode dial - U1 & U2.
You can set up one of these User configurations to modify your exposure levels, Save the settings into the camera and then switch to it when using your TP lens.
