I have set up «Auto ISO» as «Max ISO = 1600» and «Minimumn shutter speed = 1/125». Yet, if I close the diaphragm there is a point where max ISO has been reached, but then the shutter speed keeps going down if I keep closing the aperture, 1/80, 1/60, etc... I use 1/125 as a precaution, to make sure I have enough speed if I use, say, a 85 mm or 105 mm. What's the purpose of a «minimum speed» if it goes down no matter what? Shouldn't the VF say something like «Low»? There is something I don't think I understand here. Thanks.
