I did have the bounce flash issue with my 70D & Canon 550EX. Yesterday I took shots of family with my 80D and the new kit 18-135mm lens. I shot indoors and under an outdoor white patio roof, and they were all properly exposed without any compensation. It appears Canon got it right this time with 80D & bounce flash.
I humbly beg to differ that your shots are NOT exposed properly. I took your first shot, imported it into Lightroom, made a virtual copy of your photo and manually adjusted Exposure by exactly +1.0EV. Side by side are the two versions...
Now I will NOT state that "your 80D does
have an issue with flash exposure" -- it probably does not, per your example -- as Caucasion skin is generally characterized as being 1.0EV or so brighter than an 18% grey card (subject to seasonal variation due to suntan vs. winter pallor), so metering with the face being so dominant in the frame will lead meters to underexpose in general -- regardless of use of flash bounce or not! But I did want to show your exposure if 1EV brighter than as-shot and posted by you; this is a common exposure error.
