This is a non-issue for those who shoot raw. Since exposure depends upon the f-stop and shutter speed only, shoot raw in manual mode, apply any exposure compensation by changing the shutter speed or f-stop and adjust the brightness during pp if the auto ISO selected is not what you want.

I would call this a work-around but not a non-issue. Even with the new sensor, the head room in the RAW files from m4/3 cameras is still limited so you can only push and pull may be 1-1.5 stops before the IQ suffers. I simply cannot understand why some many companies cannot fully implement auto-ISO in the M-mode with Exp Comp. Is there any technical reason why this is so difficult?
