I haven't read anything about this function, and I was a little surprised to think you wouldn't be able to set the ISO to what ever you wanted. I'm happy to hear that this function can be turned on and off as needed.
My curiosity about this camera has won over my will not to buy one. Now I am playing the waiting game again. I should have mine by early next week. So get your keyboard warmed up, as I am sure I will have a few questions to ask.
