Thom Hogan has just one opinion and his own agenda. You have misunderstood Auto ISO. The point of having such a feature is not to provide a variable ISO and instantly display a value; it is simply to get the shot within a specified range. Nikon's higher priced DSLRs have this feature also and they cost MUCH more than the N series. Action photographers find it very useful. If you have no use for Auto ISO, then specify the exact ISO value you desire as with other cameras.
