Frustrating Bracketing issues in Manual (M) mode
After pouring over my user's manual and scouring the forums here (and all over the web) I have not found an answer/solution to my problem:
I am trying to BKT 3 photos in Manual Mode, shooting on CH.
The issue is, every time I fire off 3 photos, my aperture changes (leaving me with varying DOF in my photos)!
I have tried switching my shooting mode to Single (S) and have had the exact problem!
e5 is set to AE Only
e6 (Auto Bracketing - Mode M) has been set to flash/spd/ap...I have also tried flash/ap....I'm not using a flash, so I'm thinking that this function is useless to me in this situation?
I really don't want to shoot in Aperture mode to correct the problem, I'd like to stick with Manual mode.
What the heck am I missing?

I believe you need to change e6 to Flash/speed. This, in conjunction with your e5 AE only setting (and the fact you have your flash off) will cause only the shutter speed to vary in your bracketing sequence.

Sounds like Greg got the needed settings change:
e5 = AE only
e6 = flash / speed
