A77 flash exposure accuracy - anyone else experiencing this?

Hi, all.

I realize nobody here uses flash (preferring instead to shoot at high ISOs no matter how bad the light ) but I'm experiencing consistent flash exposure accuracy problems on my A77, and am wondering if it's just my unit or others are experiencing this too.

I just took some quick test shots using the A55 and A77 under identical conditions: ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/160th.

The first row is the A55 with Flash Exposure Compensation set to 0, -2, and +2. Works as it should.

The 2nd row is with the A77 with flash exposure compensation set to 0, +2, and -1.3 (which gets it as close to "normal" as I can get).

This happens consistently with the 58 and 56 flashes (either on top of the camera or in wireless), and the pop-up flash.

Is this happening to anyone else?
