Meh, this doesn't bother me that much for my type of shooting. I usually use AV or TV for action, and the ISO isn't stuck at 400 for those settings.

Still, it would be nice to have...just like all the other 5DIII features.
Cameras: 5D Mark III, 5D Mark II, Canon M. Lenses: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II, Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II,  Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro, Tokina SD 16-28mm f/2.8 FX, Canon M 18-55mm IS, Canon M 22mm

It's not a bug, it's a feature. Or so they say...

Your camera is functioning normally, it's just that for some reason, Canon decided that with a flash attached or in M mode, Auto ISO should be locked at ISO 400. You can set the ISO manually to whatever you want. If your C# settings are based on M mode, the same limitation applies.

Not that it helps, but for the 7D and subsequent cameras, Auto ISO works in M mode, so you set aperture and shutter speed, and the camera sets the ISO to achieve the metered exposure.

You should all read this Neuros post again carefuly !!
It states " with a flash attached " - thats the point .... If flash is not attached it goes over 400...

Maybe YOU should read Neuro's post again carefully; "with a flash attached OR in M mode". So even if there is no flash attached, in M mode AutoISO is limited at 400.
