The problem with using Auto ISO in Manual mode is that there is no exposure compensation ability. So if you want to intentionally underexpose a scene by choosing a faster shutter speed, the camera will just adjust the ISO and give you the same auto exposure.


Could a work around be to set one of the custom function buttons to AEL then reframe the camera putting the center of the viewfinder on a lighter/darker subject while observing the metering, lock your exposure then reframe back to the view you want to capture? This would take less time than reading the previous sentence and of course you'd need to be in spot metering mode.
