Re: The role of ISO

Please note I wasn't happy with my second post and rephrased the first part somewhat to more clearly explain my initial post.

I wasn't thrilled with "That said, many take some very nice photos in Auto mode", but perhaps I read too much into it. Although it is true I've seen some very nice shots taken that way. Also I've been a slight convert to sometimes using Auto-ISO on my RX100 in A or M modes recently, after more years than I can remember of always choosing the ISO explicitly, partly as getting quick shots of "something happening right now" in bright sunlight where the screen is hard to see can go badly wrong otherwise. (Actually the GH3 getting Auto-ISO in M would be very useful for movies, well if the ISO steps were small.)
