It is following the "1/FL" rule verbatim. @10.4mm, it is the equiv of 28mm, so...1/28 is rounded to 1/30sec...zoom to 37.1mm and its the equiv of 100mm, so then its set to 1/100sec.

For static objects, I think this is fine. The 1/FL rule + steadshot is plenty to get sharp images for me.

It does the same in P mode. For example, using available light in my kitchen nw, with both the NEX-7 and the RX100 at their widest settings, I'm getting 1/60, F3.5 and ISO1600on my NEX-7, and 1/30, F1.8 and ISO400 on the RX100. It just seems odd to me that the RX100 wouldn't bump the ISO up to 800 to get a 1/60 shutter speed.

Not a huge deal, but I'm trying to understand how this camera behaves compared to my NEX-7.
