I think this one, which actually went off, as opposed to the ones that didn't because it didn't find focus, was in LV mode. I had been leaning toward using LV mode more because I was getting better metering results with it.

Daniel, I would switch the camera to centre weighted metering, AF single with the centre AF point chosen, focus priority and choose your iso manually and sensibly. Forget LV for the moment.

If the camera doesn't then get nearly every shot close to right then either the camera or you have big problems. If it all works then try just switching to matrix metering. If everything then goes crazy, again I think it likely the camera is faulty. It could even be the lens or lens coupling that's causing the problem.

Huge numbers of this camera have been sold and though it has issues (dust for example) I don't recall reading of anybody with such comprehensive problems as you seem to have with yours. If you can't get yours to work satisfactorily then it's time to go back to the shop.
