I have dialed in +1 flash EV and then forgot about it.

I have the Metz 58 but with the puny E-M5 flash the issue is the same. No problem whatsoever after dialing in +1EV for the flash permanently. Yes the metering is apparently wrong but to me it looks quite consistently off which allows for compensation that makes it right.

Having the metering depend on how much white surface is in the picture is not a flash exposure issue but is just the same without flash.
