Are you using an in-camera meter? The heavily recessed rear element blocks the metering on many cameras, I always sunny 16 or handheld meter, it's not a good lens to use in-camera metering.
I love the tones this lens can bring, along with its lack of distortion.

yes, with the original hood on.
no, i use an iphone app (light meter). I guess it is the haze. I have never had blown highlight before with other lenses.
thank you for your comment. i like its tones too.
