A77: Inconsistent exposure/metering? (Overexposure, no flash)

I had exactly the same thing happen.

I was shooting people on a very sunny day and the same thing happened with my a77. To check the camera, I got out my a700 and got the same result, different body and different lens. I moved my subjects slightly and problem resolved. I must have been something in the background fooling the metering. I always meter spot, lock the exposure then shoot.
