A6500 metering vs A6000


having recently switched from the A6000 to the A6500 I find that most of the times the A6500 in the multi metering mode (matrix metering) consistently blows out the highlights, and this is (more?) evident when using face detect (and a face is detected). I mean I have to tune down exposure to -1EV or more in order to get exposure where I want it.

I do not recall this behaviour when I used the A6000 (with face detect on as well), most of the times the camera was spot on (face detect or not).

I now mostly resort to highlight priority but I am puzzled at the strange A6500 metering results.....
