Re: it's the slow Matrix Metering

As soon as the EVF is right the exposure is right.

You are making the same mistake and confuse the EVF/LCD display lag with the exposure lag. …

No, maybe I wasn't clear enough.

If I point the camera (in Matrix Metering) at a dark scene and then at a bright one (dark corner of a room vs. daylight outside the window) and emidiatly press the shutter (less than 1 second between dark and light exposure) I get an over exposed image. If I wait until the EVF shows the correct image I get the exposure right.

If I switch from Matrix Metering to spot or centre weighted metering I get a correctly exposed image even if the EVF hadn't updated.

You get the exposure right in ANY metering modes. Something else must be going on here if you don't get the right exposure in Matrix mode.

Now that's strange.

Maybe we should compare all possible settings. If you get the right exposure in Matrix Metering without waiting a few seconds, then you are doing something differently. I would like to find out what it is.

I tested it in P mode, Matrix Metering, ISO 100, centre AF set ot AF-A, Portrait AF OFF, AF assist light off, Auto WB, single frame.
