However, I haven't found a way to set exposure compensation on the E-M5 in this mode. I think Pentax allows it in its TAv mode (aperture and shutter mode), and I think some high end Nikons allow it too. This would be a very useful feature and should be doable with a firmware fix.

You have not found a way because there is no way to set compensation while in manual mode with Auto ISO using Olympus bodies.

Yes, if you have a specific shutter speed/aperture combination you want to use and you just want the camera to deal with the ISO, being able to set a compensation amount would be nice, but it's a feature Olympus just has not gotten around to granting, and they may never. With Panasonic, you cannot even use Auto ISO in manual exposure mode.

Posts asking this question in this forum (there have been a few) have always been "entertaining" to say the least. This one would be even more so if Detail Man were not still banned, but I anticipate it will generate some fun responses nonetheless.

For the record: Detail Man is no longer banned. The ban was rescinded almost immediately after it became known on the forum.
