Does it have AE Lock? The only AE Lock the manual indicates is when the shutter button is half pressed. I don't' see a way to lock exposure across multiple shots. Is this correct? I like creating Panoramas, but I like to stitch them myself, and without AE Lock across shots I don't see much way of fixing the exposure without going into Manual mode.

I've never had a problem with any camera without an AE lock button doing panos, all you have to do is lock the exposure with a half press on the first frame and keep moving back to it then across to the next.

I would use this method to do a pano like the one below and use up to 43 images and they blend perfectly. Child's play and no AE button needed.
