I have set ISO=200 as the base and 3200 as the max. When I shoot at A-priority f2.8 under room lighting condition, with a minimum shutter speed of 1/80, the CPU selects 1/100 sec exposure and the ISO remains at 200. Apparently, the priority for a 24-70 mm lens is to try to keep the ISO as low as possible and change the shutter speed for proper exposure.

What if I wanted the CPU to increase the ISO to 3200 and increase the speed to 1/1280, for example. Would it be necessary to increase the minimum shutter speed to accomplish this? Of course, I could just shoot manual...
