People who shoot in harsh light or use the LCD back light frequently can have a blemish in their usage of this camera.

Only if you're making unfocused macro shots of the inside of your lens cap.

No, really. About the only real-world scene where the light leak would be an issue is on a moonless night where the stars are the only source of illumination. Once you've even got a half a moon, the moon's illumination swamps the light leak. And a moonless night is not only several stops below the published effective EV range of the meter, it's a few stops below the presumed noise floor of the meter's sensor.

Even a moonlit night is too dark to reliably meter, even with a top-of-the-line Sekonic...so you're upset about the camera's built-in meter to perform dramatically better than a purpose-built tool that costs as much as the kit lens...why, exactly?

Cheers,
