Function overload resolution

In my opinion there is some inconsistence in the function overload resolution when a function parameter has a referenced array type.
Let assume that we have two functions
void f( const ( &a )[] );
void f( const ( &a )[2] );
If to write
f( { 1, 2 } );
then the second function will be selected.
However if to write
int a[2];
and then
f( a );
then the compiler will issue an error relative to an ambiguity.
It would be more natural if in this case also the second function would be selected.
With best regards
