It detects the focal length and sets the shutter speed accordingly. For instance with a 50mm lens it uses 1/50 or a bit faster. I would like to have an option to adjust this (like you can with latest Nikon cameras). If I have an IS lens, a bit slower shutter speeds are fine and so on.

Thanks so focal lenght is the only parameter it uses? If you use a zoom lens does it read the actual focal lenght used or say will use the max focal lenght of the lens to set ISO?

I tried it on a 50mm and it was giving me 1/40 as min speed?
