There simply isn't a way to have auto ISO in manual mode with Panasonic cameras. The next closest mode to it would be Program priority on the LX7 which allows you to select a minimum shutter speed for Auto ISO. However, you still can not manually select a shutter speed and Aperture independently.

Panasonic's manual mode makes the assumption that you want to choose the exposure level yourself and not let the camera select it. Going by that theory Auto ISO would not be useful because it would not be able to know what exposure level you desire.

Panasonic needs to simply change the GH3 to assume that you want the camera to expose properly in manual mode and allow Auto ISO.

They also need to enable the Auto ISO low shutter speed limit from the LX7 on the GH3. That is a bigger omission in my opinion because they do it on their lower cameras but not on their high end camera.
