comment How does histogram shape affect the aesthetics of a picture?
@ysap yes, I did mean "range" in its statistical meaning (difference between lowest and highest value), not in the mathematical sense (set of input values) - histogram is a tool from statistics. Edited, perhaps it's more clear now.

I see, your definition of correct is stricter than mine. Fair enough, here's your rep back :) There are exceptions where many speeds give exactly the same exposure such as scenes lit only by flash, or light paintings in dark; but that is not the case described in question.

If dynamic range of a scene is larger than the camera can capture, there are several speeds for correct exposure; one speed for desired exposure. In case of a smaller dynamic range than camera can capture, there are also several speeds to achieve correct exposure (not always ETTR). And camera shows comparison with measured exposure, which may not even be correct depending on metering mode and lighting.

comment Does an interchangeable-lens compact camera (SLD) give me room to grow vs. a DSLR?
Perhaps you meant Canon instead of Sony DSLRs having a wide range of used lenses available?
