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.

I am still waiting for your explanation about the differences.

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.

So, what is it you actually want the camera to do? EXPLAIN, not just dismiss others.

If you want the camera to return to ISO 100 when you switch off Auto ISO, well then set "ISO sensitivity level" to ISO 100.

If you want the camera to return to the last used fixed ISO then set "ISO sensitivity level" to whatever you want to.

What is it you want the camera to do that is not possible to do today?
