    From the EM-5 manual....
    Auto ISO sensitivity selection is available in all modes except M.
    ISO sensitivity is fixed at ISO 200 in mode M
    top of page 89.

    Seems a bit restrictive for M mode, or am I missing something :confused:.

    I think it just means that Auto mode will only pick ISO 200, instead of automatically choosing anything from 200 to 1600. You can still manually select any ISO you like.

    Actually, just tested, Auto has a full range of choices if you set Auto mode to apply to All. If you set Auto to P/A/S, then you don't get Auto for M, and have to pick manually. But then, you *are* in a manual mode, right?
