Just some more information on the metering
As per previous comments about the multi segment being a bit "hot", some examples of exposure here

As metered

I think the ideal exposure is probably about half a stop less v -0.7 (there is like other bodies an option to set half or third stop exp comp)
This is fairly typical but it does vary depending on the subject

Here is another case of clipping highlights

Sony never from what I saw provided any indication of the zone layout of the metering mode (not for multi segment metering). It doesn't seem AF point linked, it is aware of faces etc if you have the setting on. For Raw shooters it's probably not an issue, jpeg ones might find it too hot and often too much clipping.
