All the shots were taken in ETTL with the camera set to "P" mode at 400 ISO, single shot, & evaluative metering.

Have you tried average metering rather than evaluative? I've never trusted evaluative metering because I don't know what it does. Canon doesn't discuss their algorithm. My first tests on a 300d years ago showed it to be very squirrely, and I've used average ever since.

Tks, I will set to average & see if it helps with furture shots.
