The histogram is a "good alternative", not a better alternative for those who would prefer to stay in LV mode. We do not know exactly how the raw sensor is evaluated but it is not Matrix. Does it follow the focus area simulating Spot or another biasing? I do not have the answer to that. Different scenes should meter with different degrees of variations between VF and LV, and from experience that appears to be the case.
Using a different detection area and method would naturally result in different estimations in what the scene or portion of the scene illumination really is.
