Hello!

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.

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.
