By the way, I already told you that changing the metering mode does not do anything to flash exposure. Just try by yourself. There is zero change, whether you shoot in spot metering or evaluative. Flash metering is independent from ambient light metering.

I'm not a noob, and I know what I'm doing. I just wanted to hear experience from other users.
And I can see that some people are experiencing the same problems.
Now the question is, do some specific cameras or flashes have problems, or are some people simply blind not to see there's a problem?

What lens are you using.

Ok is still have no idea of what settings your using.

Are you familiar and understand how metering works, and when you should be using exposure compensation and when you should`nt.

If your using auto everything without using that nogin of yours then yes the camera can and will expose incorrectly at times, any camera will.
