So even with reversal film in these rare cases you get good to usable results.
In very strong backlight situations exposing can be a bit on the underexposed side (typical for all internal object light meters). In such situations bracketing with exposures to the plus + side is helpful.
The 3D-Color-Matrix-Metering of the F6 is by far the best and most precise metering system I've ever used.
And I have dozens of different cameras used.
