#12. "RE: Auto ISO and the D7000" In response to In response to 6 Sun 29-May-11 03:26 PM by briantilley
This seems to be a deliberate change in Auto ISO behaviour since (about) the D300s. Previously, an ISO would be selected such that the ambient & flash combined to give a good exposure. Later cameras select an ISO based on the ambient exposure only. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a firmware fix.
