I have taken a couple of outdoor shots on full auto and am getting over-exposure problems. Take on a 50mm f1.7 lens:

Auto exposure: F/5 1/125 sec ISO-100, M=pattern metering, 0 step exposure compensation.

What setting should I be using to have the camera correctly calibrate the brights and darks? I have yet to try the kit and zoom lenses under the same condition.
