The trouble with Auto ISO in Av mode now is that the camera chooses changing ISO before changing shutter speed and I hate that. Shutter speed doesn't affect image quality much after it reaches a minimum threshold for getting the shot, but ISO does.
If I could tell the camera to ONLY change ISO to keep the shutter speed from dipping below, say 1/1000, otherwise change shutter speed, that would solve my problem of constantly having to make small adjustments. As it stands now, I'm constantly making adjustments to minimize ISO and still get the shot.
That would be very powerful and be extremely helpful to sports togs who deal with rapidly changing lighting conditions.
That is the only thing that I am missing as well, on my Canon 60D! (besides microfocus adjustment)
AND, I am guessing LetTheRightLensIn would be satisfied as well with this feature on the 5DIII, because that would let you forget about the missing EC in M mode, right?!
2. So then you are like well they added min. shutter speed to Auto ISO now so at least we might be able to often get away with using Av mode instead. BUT, they make the maximum allowed min speed only 1/250th??? They limit it from 1 second to 1/250th?! What!? What does 1/250th do you for action?? And if you are using 1 second long exposures and stuff you surely have enough time to adjust the ISO as needed manually anyway.
Wow. It is so beyond absurd. Why on earth do they limit it? It makes no sense.
