As per previous comments about the multi segment being a bit "hot", some examples of exposure here
As metered -0.7EV 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.
Initial impressions surprisingly good even at F2 (subject to DOF being enough)
As for the A6300, my thoughts are the same as before. If you want a budget crop body camera and you do a lot of video, I would recommend it. Video quality is excellent (bar the panning), for a stills system I see no particular reason to invest in E mount - not when there are so many options for full frame. However lower cost lenses like this are better than they have any right to be (used the 50mm F1.2 also quite good though CA is a problem), so it has potential on that side if you don't mind using third party/budget/manual focus stuff some of it can be quite good
It's become a necessary item to have purely because I do the reviews, and whist I've done A mount reviews and there is still interest in the Minolta stuff (more than you think), clearly the MILC systems are the ones that get the new stuff v the older SLR mounts. I could of course use a different maker, wouldn't really make a lot of difference - it's just the A6300 was pretty good on price, and there is at least some compatibility with A Mount, even though I am disappointed in Sony's lack of support with the LAEA5, and the limited nature of the LAEA4 - though it's usable in many cases. So the A6300 will likely stick around for the time being. I don't particularly want to invest in another APS-C body, so later on it might be possible I will try a FF MILC - which one I can't say as I have no idea!
I continue to use the A99 as the main system camera
