So do I. 
I´ve just to add, that the Hi.Light and Shadow buttons are realy
usefull. There range with 5 stops is the same as the latitude of an
average slide film. 
So if you want to take an picture based on the extremes. Just put
several spot meterings on the places with extremes, you like to render
with details, press the appropriate button and voilà perfect exposure. 
This is most usefull in situations when there are no areas of neutral
