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.
Thanks for that .
I shot slide film for twenty five years.
Still , I would have expected a more sophisticated system in a modern camera.
