The D800 Auto ISO behaves exactly the same way in A, M and S modes.

Well, I'm talking about D600.

They both work the same.

Well in D600 AutoISO behaves differently in A and M modes so if you are right then the behavior is not the same.

The natural way for AutoISO to behave is to always allow going to ISO 100. This is how it's implemented on all other camera systems I've seen.

To always allow ISO to go to 100 is easy, set ISO to 100, then turn on auto ISO.

Duh! That's what requires using both scroll wheels and means that most recently used ISO is not preserved. In other words in A mode it's the most cumbersome way to switch between normal AutoISO and manual ISO selection.

Well Duh right back at you. You want a camera that thinks for you, the rest want the camera to do as it is told. Guess they can't make everyone happy.
