I use S mode + auto ISO at low light light, when I need a faster shutter speed than A mode selects to freeze motion and if I reckon I try to handhold a shorter shutter speed than A mode selects to save on ISO in low light.

That is my favorite way to shoot with a legacy lens too.

What I would really like is to be able to select the minimum shutter speed auto ISO can use.  That way I could use A mode, set the lens wide open and and not have to worry about the shutter speed going too slow.

It is uncommon to see entry level cameras that allow this much control over auto ISO but a lot of enthusiast level cameras do.  Hopefully Sony will add this ability to the next NEX-6/7 models.  When using an E-mount lens the camera uses  1/(2 * focal length in mm) for the minimum shutter speed but with a legacy lens attached it defaults to 1/60 which is too slow for a 300mm lens.
