The metering system is a more sophisticated variant of what is used in the M6/M6ttl/M7/MP etc.
Because it's not a 'smart' matrix metering system, but more of an averaging system it can be fooled by promient bright or dark objects.
That said I am consistently surprised by how good it actually works in real life.
But you have to know it's limitations. If you shot slide film, you'll be fine. It's just a matter of learning how the sensor reacts at various ISO settings and lighting conditions.
