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?
