So, I'll set those, then spot-meter the brightest thing in the frame that I wish to keep detail in, and then LOCK my exposure,

This works well for me for most things, but let me clarify: WHEN I SAY SET MY EXPOSURE, I'M PUTTING THE BRIGHTEST THING AT ABOUT 2 STOPS OVER CENTER ON THE METER. Very important. You can actually push it a about 1/3 or 2/3 of a stop more, and still keep detail.

I think this is where I was finding that the ISO was changing and why I went with fixed ISO. So I gather your using EC to make the 2 stops adjustment, or am i missing something else? .... thx
