just a couple of suggestions, but two different cameras & setups will not always come up with the same exposure when all settings are the same, even models of the same camera may not, & unless you have both cameras rigidly pointing at the same object with exactly the same field of view, they are likely to expose differently.
I'd check out your focusing first & then when you know that's OK, test shots for your exposure.
Thanks for your suggestions Cathus. But we were both using evaluative metering. I did try using Live View and zooming in to 10 times magnification to fine tune my manual focusing but still poor results. Maybe I'm expecting too much. I know I've had better results from my old 6mp compact though.
