Re: it's the slow Matrix Metering

Just retested it - never had a real world problem with the slow Matrix Metering - and I agree, the Matrix Metering takes some time to adjust to a new light situation.

As soon as the EVF is right the exposure is right. I guess that's why I never had a real world problem since I like to frame my images and without seeing (due to white or black out of the EVF) framing isn't possible. This behavior makes very quick snapshots between extremely different light situations impossible.

The solution is to use spot metering or centre weighted metering. In this modes you will get the right exposure even if the EVF is still blacked or whited out.
