I often think that the auto-selected speeds in P mode are too low for the attached lens.

For example, when I shoot with the 30mm, the camera goes all the way down to 1/20, even if there is still room with ISO (I select an auto ISO up to 1600, and in that situation it is often not higher than 800).

The same with the 85mm lens, where the shutter speeds selected by the camera are sometimes even 1/60, again without reaching the highest possible ISO.

This sometimes results in "micro moved" pictures, even when they shouldn't be.

Did you notice the same? Is there a way to permanently correct this issue, without having to change to S mode?

It is almost like their map for how to adjust the variables is treating everything as if it had OIS.

What I would like to see is an auto ISO that is based off of 1/(focal length * 1.5 * x), where X is a value that could be tweaked.  Pentax does this simply as fast, normal, slow, or something, where fast might be 2x focal length and slow 1x, don't recall exactly off hand.

The second method which would be nice is to use a "minimum shutter speed" for auto ISO.  This would allow setting it at 1/100 or similar.  This is ideal for moving subjects, i.e. say I want a minimum shutter speed of 1/100 so I can capture a slowly walking person without significant blurring.

I have complained about this issue before as well.  I can't hand hold an 85mm well at 1/60.  It isn't new either, it has been there on the NX200 since fairly early firmware versions.

Id love to have similar options as Pentax users have. NX300 is much better in this regard. For 16mm the speed doesnt go below 1/30s, 20mm 1/40s, 30mm 1/50s 60mm 1/100 s providing of course there is enough light.

Yay!  Finally.  Hopefully they update firmware on older models too
