A handsome chap... though with regards the sample images- I'd say a bit more time with the camera was required prior to getting the best out of it- or it genuinely has metering issues....

I shot our usual outdoor photos on a cloudy day, so some of the shots are under an overcast condition, where as the next frame may be in full sun.

Is that the "metering" issue you are referring to?

Well- the outdoor landscape (0004) is underexposed slightly,most of the goats are over or under-exposed exept maybe one (0012), the monochrome filters- green (over) and red (under), the girls indoors without flash- the less said the better, most the M+M's seem underexposed (borne out by the histogram), the fire station is definately erring on the side of "+" (we'll leave the white balance for now...) as are some of the other images.

My initial thought was that maybe it was in spot metering by mistake..!

Compare M+M shots (controlled environment) with previous review- the OM-D E-M10 for example...

You sir are correct. I accidentally had the camera set to spot metering during the my time with the camera, and it appears our reveiwer didn't catch that, and the majority of our samples were taken with spot metering.

I'm going to make a note on the samples page now. Thanks Simon!!
