    Guys..
    do you have the issue on NEX6 metering...
    i always push the metering to +1 to +2 to get the "normal picture"
    any idea to tweak it?
    I seldom use M mode..
    thanks

    What metering mode are you using? It can make a big difference, especially if you're using spot vs: center-weighted or multi.

    Bimjo, i normally use flexible spot metering...
    and my lens is either SEL50 or Sigma 30mm

    Well, that could be the issue. If the spot is on a lighter part of the frame then the pic will be underexposed. Generally speaking, center-weighted or multi works better for general photography. Give one of the other modes a try and see how that works.
