    When using Auto ISO looks like the SS is capped to 1/60s ?. This doesn't seem to work like some other camera like the D700. Not sure why Olympus designed it like this ?.

    What limit do you have set for your auto-iso?

    From what I have seen, it takes the lense into account. Mine seems to vary deopending on the lense.

    I'll have to investigate more when I get home...I briefly tried last night and the camera allowed shutter speeds over 1/60, but the aperture had to be adjusted.

    ...another reason not to use P mode frankly! I hate the camera deciding things for me.

    You should be able to set the lower limit of SS before it impacts on ISO by going to menu F and adjusting the slow limit value to something slower. I've got mine set to 1/30 rather than the default 1/60.

    It's not a well described feature apparently, and I believe I read about it here a few weeks ago.

    Yeah, so Olympus designed it to work with flash :rofl:.

    Ah, I recall reading about this now...I believe in Dpreview's em5 "guide". Olympus basically hid this in the flash menu for some reason.
