Great point philip, i too noticed the metering to be spot on! In PP i have yet to adjust the exposure...previously i always had to fiddle with it a tad bit, but agreed, its spot on.
I never had issues with the mode dial, but its good to hear the option is there.
I also did ISO test like all the other reviews did, and yes, at 3200..its definitly a usabel photo! Dead impressed. In fact i pixel peeped all the way down and i couldnt see a difference between 100 all the way up to 1200, past that i was able to see small differences, still not enough to consider.
