People are still forgetting the different systems perform slightly differently, some systems might have a tendency to over expose very slightly, others might under expose very slightly.

Here your probably talking just a couple of tenths of a stop and up to a third of a stop but by then putting two pictures from different camera systems side by side (page 1) it then makes the difference look a whole lot worse than it really is.

Aiming a camera at a white wall and using ttl its highly likely the flash will under expose, its trying to expose the white wall as 18% grey, increasing under exposure even further.

TTL has never been fall proof, it still needs some kind of input from its user at times.

Has the OMD got a severe exposure problem, no, as they say, a bad worker always blames his tools.

User error.
