The Ex Comp was on zero.

The curious thing though was when it locked focus it was indicated by a green lines that when around the edge on the EVF and not the usual square you normally see at the centre of the viewfinder. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

That suggests you have the AF assist lamp turned on - it seems odd but try turning it off; that normally helps lock focus. Not sure if it effects metering though. :-/

I have a/f assist turned off on all of my digital cameras, not just the NEX 5R.  As well, I find the auto WB on NEX 7 / 5R  / 5N ... in low ligh doesn't work paricularly well ... as you can see in these pictures. Ideally, you need to  adjust the WB manually, to improve the colours and contrast in low light.
