I know that it's not the purpose of your post but it's always worth remembering that the camera has an Auto function and I'm often surprised at what a good job it can do. Sometimes, when out with friends and in conversation or if a 'seize the moment' opportunity arises I will use Auto rather than faff about for the right settings and miss the shot. I know that it's probably a sign of weakness but there you have it.

I just tried your idea in all different lighting situations around the house. The E-M1 seemed to be stuck on f2.8 and never went above ISO 1600. In a dark spot in my garage it blinked indicating it couldn't get proper exposure but still was at ISO 1500. I thought it might be set to go no higher than that so I went into the menu and the item to set the ISO range was greyed out.

Is your experience different with Intelligent Auto on the E-M1?
